Charlotte, N.C. (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
Harris Teeter and its food bank partners have been fighting hunger in their communities for decades. Harris Teeter, in its 10th year hosting Harvest Feast which provides assistance its local food bank partners, is once again offering its generous shoppers the opportunity to get involved. Thursday, Nov. 1 – Friday, Nov. 30, Harris Teeter customers can donate money or nonperishable food items to their local food bank to help feed America.
Harris Teeter launched Harvest Feast in 2003. Since that time, the company’s shoppers have donated over one million dollars as well as donated hundreds of thousands of pounds of nonperishable food items to support its local food bank partners. The company owes the success of the Harvest Feast campaign to its loyal shoppers and hopes for continued participation again this year.
Together, we can end hunger in the community. Every dollar and canned food item donated during the campaign makes a difference in the number of community members Harris Teeter’s food bank partners can help. This includes adults, children and seniors who rely on food banks to supply a network of partner agencies with enough grocery items to assist people in need.
All monies and product donated will stay in the local community in which it was collected; no donation is too big or small.

The company would also like to thank its media partners Cox Cable, WCSC-TV, WGHP-TV, WBTV, WILM and WRAL for assisting with promotion of the food drive and donation card campaign.
