"At Food Lion, we are proud of our diverse and inclusive workforce representative of the towns and cities we serve,” said Millette Granville, vice president of talent, diversity and inclusion and organization development at Food Lion. "We’re honored to receive a top score for the 10th year and remain committed to being a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ equality.”

In addition to receiving the perfect score on the Index, Food Lion is also a member of the HRC Business Coalition for the Equality Act, which would create comprehensive non-discrimination protections for individuals in the LGBTQ community.
