How Much Food Can One Moving Truck Hold?

How Much Food Can One Moving Truck Hold?
The Folks at Lowes Foods and City Transfer & Storage Co. are looking to find out.
 
Kernersville, NC- You can’t fake local; a mantra that sets Lowes Foods apart from other grocers. That is why Move For Hunger is proud to announce that Lowes Foods is teaming up with City Transfer & Storage Co. to host a Fill A Truck event to help alleviate the pressing issue of hunger in the immediate community.
 
On Saturday, October 18 at 10 a.m. City Transfer & Storage Co. will park empty trucks in front of two Lowes Foods locations at 10106 South Main Street in Archdale and 535 Nelson Street in Kernersville.
 
Local residents, neighbors, and members of the community are challenged to fill those trucks with unopened, non-perishable food donations before the truck leaves at 3 p.m. While any donation is welcome, the most needed items are canned tuna, meats, vegetables and fruit, pasta, rice, as well as peanut butter and jelly.
 
“I think it’s fantastic to see such a strong sense of local pride from these two companies,” says Move For Hunger’s, Daniel Ratner. “It is that mentality that will make this event a success. There is no better motivation than knowing that one’s donation will go to helping one’s ‘neighbor’.”
City Transfer & Storage Co. with Atlas Van Lines has generously provided the trucks and will also deliver the donations to the local food bank after the event.
