For the eighth year, Titan Farms and Harris Teeter have donated peaches to Second Harvest Food Banks in Raleigh and Charlotte, North Carolina.

This year’s donation to the “Peaches with a Purpose” program was especially important to local communities, with 76,000 pounds of peaches donated to local food banks, which is more than double last year’s donation.  

“Every year, we are honored to partner with Harris Teeter to support our local communities,” said Lori Anne Car, VP, administrative manager of Titan Farms. “Fresh produce is scarce in food banks across the country, so we are grateful to be able to provide our local community members who are in need with nutritious peaches.” 

The partners created “Peaches with a Purpose” in order to help feed the underserved while bringing attention to the problem of food insecurity in the U.S.

“We are proud to collaborate with Titan Farms to support local hunger relief in our local communities. Together, we are supporting healthy communities,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager of Harris Teeter.

Harris Teeter, with headquarters in Matthews, North Carolina, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Kroger Co. The regional grocery chain employs 35,000 employees and operates stores in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Maryland, Delaware, Florida and the District of Columbia.

Founded in 1999 by Chalmers and Lori Anne Carr, Titan Farms is a grower, packer and shipper of fresh peaches and vegetables. The family-run operation is the largest peach grower on the East Coast with more than 6,200 acres of peaches, 600 acres of bell peppers, 1,000 acres of broccoli and 36 acres of eggplant.
