As a homegrown, locally owned grocer, Lowes Foods is committed to giving back to the communities we serve in North and South Carolina. Below are the causes that Lowes Foods prioritizes for support.
• Feeding the Hungry
Lowes Foods is unable to fulfill requests for funding individuals, trips, tours, student exchange programs, or fund drives conducted for political organizations.
To reach the most people as efficiently as possible, we direct our home office donations through Feeding America. We support two major food drives throughout the year, Friends Feeding Friends in November and December and Bag Childhood Hunger in June. Friends Feeding Friends is the largest Food drive in the Carolinas. All donations stay in the local community. If you are a non-profit and you are interested in donations for a food bank you are starting, please reach out to the Feeding America branch in your area. If you have a non-profit and are inquiring about over-produced items in our fresh department, please contact your store directly.
We allow Boy Scouts to sell popcorn during the months of September and October. If you are requesting a time at one of our stores, we provide links on this page to sign up on August 1st for Boy Scouts.
We allow Girl Scouts to sell cookies in front of our stores stores on select Friday’s, Saturdays and Sunday’s during the months of January through March. See approved dates below for your region. Sign ups for Girl Scout Cookie Booths will now be handled through your council directly. Please contact your Product Program Manager to schedule your sign up.

If you are requesting a product donation, please contact the Store Manager where you shop. All product donations are made through our stores.
