Harris Teeter throws away all unused hot food items as well as non purchased grocery items. They do NOT make any of these items available to local food banks, or charities. They do not make the items available to their employees. All items are trashed and wasted on a daily basis.

Local churches, shelters, and food banks can directly reach individuals in the community whom are unable to visit or participate with larger charities. While Harris Teeter does contribute gift cards on a corporate level to selected charities;Local individual Store Managers have no capability or authority to participate locally. ALL stores must throw away ALL prepared food and unsold groceries contributing to the hazardous practices of dumpster diving rather than contributing the edible items to a local shelter or charity.

Harris Teeter is contributing towards excessive waste rather than participate in the effort to Stop hunger even during a global public health pandemic. STOP destroying food that could be used to help the increasing numbers of people who are underprivileged and food insecure.

Many / Most other local food chains, restaurants, and grocery stores work to openly donate and support local food banks, and local shelters. Harris Teeter should do the same!!!
