Centsible Saver

Sale on Food Lion canned goods is your free ticket to the State Fair

Food Lion has got a great deal on its store-brand canned veggies -- just in time for the State Fair’s Hunger Relief Day.

Bring five cans of Food Lion house-branded food to the fair on Thursday, Oct. 23 and your admission is free.

Starting today, the 14.5- to 15.25-oz. cans of My Essentials vegetables are just 68 cents each.

Five cans will cost you $3.40 -- a $5.60 savings on the $9 cost of admission at the gate.

For a child’s ticket, you’ll save 60 cents.

The food, by the way, goes the the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina so it’s a win-win for everyone involved.
