Reminder: Harris Teeter Harvest Feast Food Drive has started!

Posted October 29, 2011

Harris Teeter is hosting their annual Harvest Feast Food Drive so if you are wondering what to do with some of your overstock, here's an easy way to donate and help out some folks in need!  The food drive takes place Wednesday, Oct. 26 – Tuesday, Nov. 29.  Shoppers purchase either $5 or $20 donation cards or they can donate nonperishable products in the collection bins in the lobby of Harris Teeter stores.  With Harris Teeter Super Doubles coming up on Wednesday (11/2), I am sure we can help fill those bins!

    Clayton Area Ministries accepts turkey and other meats. They have a freezer and they normally give our turkeys for Thanksgiving if they receive them.

    Our November N. Raleigh swap will be November 19 at 3:00 at the Moe's at Triangle Town Center, and I always accept food/toiletry donations and pass them on to the food pantry at Catholic Parish Outreach (they serve ALL people, and lots of them). This swap will be right before Thanksgiving and the demand will be exceptionally high, so if you are coming to the swap and you're able to help, it will be MUCH appreciated. They have a high demand for light and/or reduced-sodium items because of clients who have health concerns, so please keep that in mind when purchasing soups or canned veggies to donate since there are reduced-sodium versions of both. Thank you so much!! My husband recently shot video of the operation at Catholic Parish Outreach and said that a couple hundred people visit their food pantry EVERY DAY.

    I just LOVE all the things HT does during the year to help communities they are in. They're simply the best no matter where they operate. Always helping!

    I look forward to dropping off goodies in the bins over the next month.

    Faye - do you know of any group that collects frozen turkeys for Thanksgiving to give to families in need?

    When I lived in MD, I knew a family in need and a friend and I always bought everything their family of 5 needed, right down to a couple of gallons of milk - to put on a full T'giving feast. I miss doing that!
