A Child’s Haven gets Food Lion foundation gift
A Child’s Haven has received $1,725 from the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation. The organization will use the gift to continue offering healthy meals to children who attend the center, while also stressing the importance of a healthy diet for growing children, according to a news release.
A Child’s Haven is a 501(c)(3) organization that treats children with developmental delays as a result of limited resources, abuse or neglect, and provides support and education for their families.
“Learning healthy eating habits during childhood has long-term advantages. Most children and families at A Child’s Haven live below the poverty level, and our meals are often the only nutritious meals the children receive,” said Laurie Rovin, center director, in the release. “The Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation’s gift will help us continue teaching children how to enjoy a variety of healthy foods.”
Established in 2001, the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation provides financial support for programs and organizations dedicated to feeding the hungry in the communities it serves. Since its inception, the foundation has awarded more than $10 million in grants, the release said.
