Harris Teeter thanks valued associates, loyal shoppers for donating more than $430,000 to support Local Food Banks

Donation made possible through generous contributions to support Backpack Boosters Round Up Campaign to help provide nutritious meals to children-in-need.

Matthews, N.C. – Harris Teeter announced today a donation more than $430,000 to local food banks, which went to support families-in-need during the school year.

During the month of January, all Harris Teeter locations hosted an in-store donation campaign, inviting shoppers to round up their transaction to the nearest whole dollar at checkout.

Funds collected through Backpack Boosters benefited local food bank backpack programs, which provide nutritious meals and snacks to families-in-need across Harris Teeter’s operating area.

The donation was made possible through generous contributions from Harris Teeter’s loyal shoppers and valued associates.

“While many families look forward to weekends, there are many children who leave school on Friday afternoon not knowing when they’ll receive their next meal,” said Danna Robinson, Director of Corporate Affairs for Harris Teeter. “With these generous contributions from our associates and shoppers to support our local food bank partners’ backpack programs, we are able to help those children and their families who are in need.”

All funds collected during the campaign will be allocated to local food banks throughout the areas in which Harris Teeter does business.
