Harris Teeter hosts food drive now through Aug. 4, 2014 to support its local food bank partners

Donate Non-Perishable Foods at Participating Harris Teeter Stores to help Local Food Banks

Matthews, N.C., 2014-7-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — In partnership with the Washington Nationals, Harris Teeter is hosting a food drive now through Aug. 4, 2014 to support its local food bank partners.

In May, Harris Teeter donated $400,000 to its various food bank partners and is now hosting this food drive to help raise additional awareness for the problem of hunger.  Donations made at Harris Teeter locations will benefit Capital Area Food Bank and Loudoun Interfaith Relief; beneficiaries will be displayed on posters placed on the collection bins in each store.

In addition to donating food at local Harris Teeter stores, Nationals fans may bring non-perishable food items to Nationals Park on Aug. 2 and 3 when the team faces the Philadelphia Phillies.  Volunteers will collect donations outside the Center Field Gate from the time gates open through the fourth inning. Donations made at Nationals Park will benefit Capital Area Food Bank. Fans who donate three non-perishable food items at the ballpark will receive two tickets to a future game, while supplies last. Additionally, the first 1,000 fans to donate Harris Teeter Brands canned goods on Aug. 2 and the first 1,000 fans to donate Harris Teeter Brands canned goods on Aug. 3 will also receive $5 worth of NatsBucks.

Please join our team and the Nationals in the fight against hunger.
