Tuesday, Nov. 18, 2014, Harris Teeter associates and food bank volunteers gathered at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina to assemble 2,000 Thanksgiving dinner bags for families-in-need. Immediately following the assembly, Harris Teeter associates personally distributed the meals to many of the food bank’s partner agencies; the agencies will then distribute the meals directly to the families.
Each Thanksgiving dinner bag has enough food to provide a holiday meal to a family of four and contains products for a delicious and easy Thanksgiving meal including: chicken, stuffing, buttery mashed potatoes, gravy, yams, corn, green beans, cranberry sauce, rolls and cookie mix.
“Harris Teeter is excited to feed 8,000 local community members who are less-fortunate this holiday season,” said Danna Jones, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “We are pleased with the success of this event each year and are happy to not only aid local hunger relief, but to also continually serve our Charlotte community.”
This is the fifth year that Harris Teeter is hosting a bag assembly in Charlotte as part of the company’s annual Harvest Feast programming.
Harris Teeter would like to thank its generous vendors who made this donation possible: Idahoan Foods, McCormick, Kings Hawaiian, Del Monte, Ocean Spray, McCall Farms, Hanover, and New York Packaging.
