Harris Teeter and Titan Farms Donate 37,800 lbs of Fresh Peaches; Danna Robinson and Lori Anne Carr Comment
MATTHEWS, NC - There's no denying the joy that a bite into a fresh peach can provide. Spreading the bliss through its Peaches with a Purpose campaign, Harris Teeter and Titan Farms recently made a donation of 37,800 pounds of fresh peaches to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina (SHFBM).
"We want to thank Titan Farms for supporting local hunger relief efforts and for allowing us to consistently be a part of this program," said Danna Robinson, Director of Corporate Affairs 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 in need."
Titan Farms donated a percentage of each peach sale made at a North Carolina Harris Teeter location between July 26 and August 8 to SHFBM in the form of fresh peaches. The impactful fresh fruit donation will benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, which serves a total of 24 counties in North Carolina and South Carolina.
Titan Farms created Peaches with a Purpose to help feed the under-served while bringing attention to the problem of food-insecurity, a press release explained. In collaboration with Harris Teeter, the two companies have donated more than 380,000 pounds of peaches over the last 10 years.
"I am eternally grateful for 10 years of continuous support through Peaches with a Purpose from Harris Teeter and its loyal customers," said Lori Anne Carr, Vice President of Titan Farms. "Fresh produce is often in short supply in food banks; through this partnership, we have been able to provide fresh, nutritious peaches to local N.C. communities for an entire decade. In collaboration with Harris Teeter, Titan Farms serves as a valuable means to address the scarcity of fresh produce in food banks. This partnership demonstrates a commitment to helping families and individuals access essential resources."
We applaud both of these companies for their fruit-forward efforts to support communities in need! For more updates like this, keep reading ANUK.
