SALISBURY, N.C., Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With school officially back in session, Food Lion is inviting customers to help raise funds for the school of their choice by participating in the MVP Classroom Rewards program.

Qualified brands include my essentials, Healthy Accents, Home 360, Home 360 Baby, Home 360 Pet, Nature's Place, Taste of Inspirations and Butcher's Brand products.
