Titan Farms and Harris Teeter came together to make a peach donation to Second Harvest Food Banks in Winston-Salem and Metrolina/Charlotte, North Carolina.

Over the past five years, the two companies have continued to donate to the Peaches with a Purpose program. This year’s donation tipped the scales to reach a total of 219,000 pounds of peaches donated over the past five years, marking a milestone for the program.

“Five years ago, we never would have imagined the impact Peaches with a Purpose could have on these communities,” says Lori Anne Carr, VP of Titan Farms, which is based in Ridge Spring, South Carolina. “Giving back and supporting local communities has always been important to us, and we are grateful we have been able to partner with Harris Teeter to help the food impoverished for so many years in a row.”

Titan Farms, the largest peach grower on the East Coast, created Peaches with a Purpose to help feed the underserved while bringing attention to the problem of food insecurity in the United States. This is the fifth year North Carolina-based Harris Teeter—a banner of The Kroger Co.—and the peach grower have partnered in the fight to aid hunger.

“On the behalf of children and families who struggle daily with hunger in our communities, we want to thank Harris Teeter and their partner Titan Farms for their commitment to help end hunger,” says Kay Carter, executive director for Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. “It is imperative that those living in poverty can afford and have access to healthy food options and produce. We are very grateful for this support that has made such a difference in so many lives.”
