Harris Teeter gives 10 tons of peaches to food banks

The hungry families of the Charlotte region will be getting their fill of peaches for the next few weeks, thanks to a donation by Harris Teeter that stocked shelves at Second Harvest Food Bank with 26,500 pounds of peaches.

In all, 53,000 pounds of peaches were donated to food banks in the state through the Peaches for a Purpose program, which offered to donate one peach to charity for every peach purchased by Harris Teeter customers during July.

The program was sponsored by Titan Farms, the largest peach grocer on the east coast, and involved purchases made at 150 Harris Teeter store in the Carolinas.

Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina says there are about 486,000 people struggle with hunger in the 19 county Charlotte region, including over 170,000 children and almost 39,000 seniors. Mark Price
