Firms team up to offer peach of a donation

September 23, 2014 by  

Matthews-based retailer Harris Teeter recently joined forces with Titan Farms to donate more than 58,000lb of peaches to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina in Winston-Salem, as well as the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina in Charlotte.

This is the second year in a row that the peach-growing company Titan Farms has held its ‘Peaches with a Purpose’ program, seeking to help feed the hungry in the local communities.

The program was created to address hunger concerns both in the short-term and long-term. The peach grower and retailer are partners in this endeavor and are also no doubt working with banner printing companies to help in their efforts to raise awareness of the issue.

According to vice president of Titan Farms, Lori Anne Carr, the collaboration with Harris Teeter in this program is “an honor” and the hope is that it can continue for many years to come. About 144 Harris Teeter stores in the state were part of the program, which ran through the month of August.

The executive director for Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, Kay Carter, thanked Harris Teeter and Titan Farms for working together, adding that fruits and vegetables are often among the least affordable grocery items to those living in poverty, making the assistance of program like this all the more important.
