Fayetteville State University (FSU) recently received $10,000 from Food Lion to support the campus food pantry. The pantry, which opened in February 2019, is in the old cashier’s window on the first floor of the Barber Administration Building.
“On behalf of the entire Broncos family, I thank Food Lion for their generous gift in support of the food pantry,” said Chancellor Darrell T. Allison. “This pantry will be a valuable resource for our students and will help FSU in our fight against food insecurities.”
Food Lion was instrumental in supporting the pantry when it opened two year ago. The food chain provided $10,000 in product and shelving and laptops to get the pantry started. For 25 years, Food Lion has partnered with Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Conference schools to set up pantries in 13 towns and cities where CIAA schools are located. FSU is a member of the CIAA Conference.
