Feed the Need, The News & Observer’s annual community service project, wraps up Saturday with a special event at five area Harris Teeter stores. The project, in its eighth year, raises awareness about kids and hunger, collects food donations and raises money for the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina.
Volunteers will be at these Harris Teeter stores from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday to invite shoppers to donate nutritious, nonperishable food or cash to support the food bank’s Kids Meals and More programs:
• Crescent Commons, Cary
• Flowers Plantation, Clayton
• Hope Valley Commons, Durham
• Falls Pointe, Raleigh
• Leesville Towne Center, Raleigh
You may also support Feed the Need by donating online at feedtheneednc.com, sending a check to Feed the Need, Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina, 3808 Tarheel Drive, Raleigh, NC 27609 or by donating food at Harris Teeter stores through Sunday.
Donations of any amount are appreciated; gifts of $100 or more will be acknowledged in a thank-you ad when the project is over. Gifts to the food bank are tax-deductible. Learn more at feedtheneednc.com.
