SALISBURY, N.C. (WBTV) - A big truck rolled out of Food Lion headquarters in Salisbury on Monday to take much-needed supplies to tornado victims in America’s heartland.

Food Lion Feeds reached out to the Emergency Management Agency of Christian County, Ky., which serves one of the areas devastated by Friday’s tornado outbreak to ask if a drinking water donation from Food Lion Feeds would be helpful in their efforts to assist area residents.
