Trucks For Change Network is looking for carriers and allied trades to participate in “Rolling Over Hunger” by organizing a food collection drive for their local food banks, or by donating transportation to collect and deliver donations in their area of operation.
Each year, 850,000 Canadians rely on food banks, 300,000 of them children.
Trucks For Change Network (T4C) founder Pete Dalmazzi emphasizes that you don’t have to be a T4C member to participate. “Hunger knows no boundaries,” Pete explained, “so we are encouraging anyone and everyone in this industry to take part and help show once again how committed the trucking industry is to helping those in need in our communities”.
The campaign will officially kick off at T4C’s Annual General Meeting and Partner Reception on November 18 in Toronto. Later that afternoon, volunteers from across the industry will participate in a “Food Sort Challenge” at Toronto’s Daily Bread Food Bank, where they will “compete” in a fun food sorting and packing event while raising funds to fight hunger.
