“It was inspiring to work alongside 300 of Harris Teeter’s valued ‘VolunTeeters’ to give back to our community and support Second Harvest’s mission to eliminate hunger,” said Tammy DeBoer, president.

“We’ve partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina for more than 30 years and I’m proud we could partner with them today to make a difference in our communities.” 

The donation totaled nearly $95,000 worth of products. The backpacks included items such as Kraft Mac & Cheese, Harris Teeter brand cereal bars and soups, SpaghettiOs products and canned meats.

The company shared in a statement that special thanks goes “to Campbell Soup Co., Conagra Brands and Crider Foods for partnering with [us] to make this event possible.”

“Our work with Harris Teeter makes a significant impact on our mission to eliminate hunger,” said Kay Carter, CEO of the food bank.

“The backpacks we assembled today will be distributed to children living at or below the poverty level in the 24 North Carolina and South Carolina counties we serve and will ensure they have much-needed food to fill the gaps when they are out of school.”
