Fighting Hunger In America benefits two reputable not for profit organizations: Convoy Of Hope and Meals On Wheels Association of America. These two groups are working hard to feed and care for people throughout the United States and around the world.
Convoy of Hope has been especially busy responding to the tornado-devastated areas throughout the country. “In total, we’ve shipped more than 107,895 pounds of relief supplies to Arkansas, Kansas and Mississippi,” says Chris Dudley, disaster services response director. “Our teams are working with local volunteers to distribute relief and assist homeowners with debris removal.”
Registering your food truck to Fight Hunger In America allows your customers to easily donate to Convoy of Hope while they wait for their taco, sandwich or cupcake.
“You don’t know how valuable the resources are that Convoy of Hope offers until you are in a place when you need them,” said one local leader of Vilonia, Arkansas. “When you’re donating to Convoy of Hope, it’s about more than just you. It’s about more than just your community, it’s about thinking of others.”
The registration process is simple. Follow the link, answer a couple of questions, pay a small annual fee (for marketing opportunities), and you’ll receive your signage in the mail. Post it on your truck where your customers can see it and encourage them to donate.
The more trucks that join Fighting Hunger In America mean more resources to support disaster-relief… right now.
