Tuesday, May 6, 2014, Harris Teeter and Cargill Meat Solutions are hosting a private ceremony to present Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina with a donation of both protein and cash in support of its commitment to fighting hunger in the Charlotte community. Harris Teeter is offering the donation to Second Harvest to celebrate that it is the first retailer in the country to meet the requirements of the USDA Certified Very Tender program.
The USDA Very Tender certification guarantees consumers the highest-quality tender eating experience, and Harris Teeter believes that the program will serve as a useful tool for consumers for whom tenderness is a necessary contributor to their beef purchase.
Representatives from Harris Teeter, Cargill Meat Solutions and Second Harvest will attend the ceremony.
Harris Teeter has partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina for decades, providing the organization with both food and funds to help fight hunger in the Charlotte area. Harris Teeter hosts both in-store campaigns for the food bank and also donates to it through corporate giving dollars.
Following the press conference, Harris Teeter will sample its Angus Boneless Strip Steak, a product which meets the requirements of the USDA Certified Very Tender label. The sampling will take place between 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. in front of the store.
