Harris Teeter Launches Harvest Feast Food Drive
Harris Teeter and its food bank partners have been fighting hunger in its communities for decades, the company said.
Harris Teeter, in its ninth year hosting Harvest Feast, which provides assistance to community members in need, is once again offering its shoppers the opportunity to get involved. Through Tuesday, Nov. 29, customers can donate money or nonperishables to their local food bank through Harris Teeter.
Harris Teeter launched Harvest Feast in 2003. Since that time, the company has raised nearly $1 million to support its local food bank partners, as well as donated hundreds of thousands of pounds of nonperishable food items, a news release said. "The Harris Teeter Harvest Feast Campaign is more important than ever this year," said Kay Carter, executive director serving Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. "The number of people in poverty in our region now stands at over 415,000 and sadly 185,000 of these people are children and seniors. Every scan card purchased during the Harvest Feast campaign will help Harris Teeter's Feeding America partners feed one of our hungry neighbors in need."
Shoppers can join Harris Teeter in its fight against hunger by purchasing either $5 or $20 donation cards or by donating nonperishable products in the collection bins in the lobby.
All monies and product donated will stay in the local community in which it was collected.
