To help support the large number of Michigan families facing a hunger crisis and in need of emergency food support, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® moving company locations across the state are hosting the Movers for Meals food drive to stock up Food Bank Council of Michigan member food pantries in preparation for winter.
According to the Food Bank Council of Michigan, 19% of Michigan’s total population faces hunger regularly, while approximately one in four children in the state do not have a consistent source of healthy food. This marks the third year the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Michigan franchises are running a food drive for the holidays. In 2012, Movers for Meals donated more than 16,000 lbs. of food to food banks across the state.
Metro Detroit TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® locations are collecting donations for the Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan by partnering with organizations throughout the area including local Rainbow Child Care Center and KinderCare locations, and Nexus Academy of Royal Oak.
Movers for Meals will run through Nov. 22 — the Friday before Thanksgiving. Anyone interested in supporting the food drive can drop off non-perishable food donations at participating TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® locations in Michigan.
Organizations interested in supporting Movers for Meals as a collection site will be supplied with free donation boxes and donation delivery to Gleaners Community Food Bank. A list of Food Bank Council of Michigan food banks can be found at www.fbcmich.org. To find the nearest TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® location, visit www.twomenandatruck.com.
