Mississauga, Ont.-based Schenker of Canada Ltd. launched its 2009 Nationwide Food Drive on June 2, which marked National Hunger Awareness Day. The drive will run until June 16.
The company will be placing food collection bins in each of its 40 offices across Canada and it’s urging its customers and suppliers to do the same. At the end of the drive, representatives from Schenker will collect the food bins for distribution to local food banks.
Last year, Schenker’s food drive collected more than 40,000 kg of food (or 87,000 lbs).
