We are excited to celebrate the grand re-opening of our newly remodeled/expanded Middlebrook Pike Food City in Knoxville. Festivities began at 9 a.m. today (4/20) and include ribbon cutting and flag raising ceremonies, department sampling and other refreshments.

Project Help: Also on April 20, Food City hosted a check presentation for Project Help, a collaborative effort to provide heating assistance to local residents in need during the cold weather season. The presentation was at the Middlebrook Pike store, 9565 Middlebrook Pike, at 9 a.m.

For more than 20 years, Food City has been proud to host the annual Project Help. The promotion ran from Jan. 5 to Feb. 1 in Knoxville area Food City stores. Shoppers were invited to make a dollar contribution at the check-out to help their neighbors in need.

Thanks to the support and generosity of loyal Food City customers and associates, this year’s Project Help campaign raised $53,386.

Jobs, jobs, jobs: Food City continues to hire for full- or part-time jobs, entry-level or skilled positions. Interested candidates can apply online at FoodCity.com or visit any Food City store to complete an application.

Every year, Food City in Halls hosts a parking lot car show to benefit the Halls High School band. This year’s show was April 16 and here are some photos.

Betsi James is special events manager for Food City’s Knoxville and Chattanooga divisions.
