    Harris Teeter, Nats Team Up Against Hunger

    Nonperishable donations accepted at stores, ballpark

    Harris Teeter and the Washington Nationals are hosting a food drive through Aug. 4 to support the Southeast grocer's local food bank partners.

    Donations made at participating Harris Teeter stores will benefit Capital Area Food Bank and Loudoun (Va.) Interfaith Relief, with beneficiaries displayed on posters at the collection bins in each store.

    As well as donating food at local Harris Teeter stores, Nationals fans can bring nonperishable food items to Nationals Park on Aug. 2 and Aug. 3 when the baseball team plays against the Philadelphia Phillies. Volunteers will collect donations outside the center field gate from the time gates open through the fourth inning.

    Donations made at Nationals Park will aid Capital Area Food Bank. Fans who donate three nonperishable food items at the ballpark will receive two tickets to a future game, while supplies last. Further, the first 1,000 fans to donate Harris Teeter Brands canned goods on Aug. 2 and the first 1,000 fans to donate Harris Teeter Brands canned goods on Aug. 3 will get $5 worth of NatsBucks.

    Matthews, N.C.-based Harris Teeter, which merged earlier this year with Kroger and operates more than 230 stores in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, Maryland and Delaware, donated $400,000 to its various food bank partners in May.
