Titan Farms Donates Produce to Harris Teeter to Aid Hunger
Ridge Spring, S.C. - November 16, 2016-
Titan Farms, the largest peach grower on the east coast and its
retail partner Harris Teeter join efforts once again to fight
hunger through a donation of more than 21,000 bell peppers donated
from the farm. The North Carolina-based retailer kicked off its
Harvest Feast campaign where they will distribute thousands of
holiday dinner bags through the Second Harvest Food Bank of
Metrolina's network of partner agencies.
As part of its Harvest Feast, the
retailer held its seventh-annual event to assemble thousands of
dinner donation bags last week in preparation for the holidays.
Each Thanksgiving dinner bag contains
products for a homemade Thanksgiving meal that includes bell
peppers from Titan Farms, chicken, yams, corn, green beans,
cranberry sauce and other holiday classics. Each bag has
enough food to provide a holiday meal to a family of four. The
bag assembly is hosted in conjunction with Harris Teeter's annual
Harvest Feast Food Drive and Donation Card Campaign.
"We want to thank Titan Farms for
supporting local hunger relief efforts and helping us feed 8,000
Charlotte community members who are less-fortunate this holiday
season," said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris
Teeter. "Fresh produce is scarce in food banks across the country,
and we are happy to be able to contribute nutritious items to those
"We so appreciate our partner Harris
Teeter giving us the opportunity to make a difference and
participate in Harvest Feast," said Lori Anne Carr, vice-president
of Titan Farms. "During this season of giving thanks, we are elated
to be able to put fresh produce in the hands of those in
need. The main focus of the holiday season should be on
family and our time together, and not on whether there will be
enough food to share with loved ones."
Harris Teeter and
Titan Farms would like to offer a special thanks to Jear Logistics
for helping transport the donated product.
