Harris Teeter Packs 1,000 Thanksgiving Dinners to Aid Local Families
11/19/2014 3:07:33 PM


On Monday, Nov. 17, 2014, Harris Teeter associates and food bank volunteers gathered at the Lowcountry Food Bank in North Charleston to assemble 1,000 Thanksgiving dinner bags for families-in-need. Immediately following the assembly, Harris Teeter associates personally distributed the meals to many of the food bank’s partner agencies; the agencies will then distribute the meals directly to the families.

Each Thanksgiving dinner bag has enough food to provide a holiday meal to a family of four and contains products for a delicious and easy Thanksgiving meal including: chicken, stuffing, buttery mashed potatoes, gravy, yams, corn, green beans, cranberry sauce, rolls and cookie mix.

“Harris Teeter is excited to feed 4,000 local community members who are less-fortunate this holiday season,” said Danna Jones, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “We are pleased with the success of this event and are happy to not only aid local hunger relief, but to also continually serve our Charleston community.”

The bag assembly is part of Harris Teeter’s annual Harvest Feast Food Drive and Donation Card Campaign. Harris Teeter has hosted similar bag assembly events in Charlotte and Raleigh, but this is the first year that Harris Teeter has hosted a bag assembly in Charleston.

Harris Teeter would like to thank its generous vendors who made this donation possible: Idahoan Foods, McCormick, Kings Hawaiian, Del Monte, Ocean Spray, McCall Farms, Hanover, and New York Packaging.
