This video shares the celebration of Wabash Trailers donating a 53-foot refurbished refrigerated trailer to Food Finders Food Bank. We at TKO Graphix were proud to participate by contributing the graphics. Because of this trailer, children and families will receive the nourishment they need, they will not go hungry. Food Finders officials said it would make their operations smoother and more secure. In the past, they’ve turned down food donations because their old trailer wasn’t in the condition needed to transport the goods.
“There is enough food in this country to feed everybody. But getting it where it needs to be, getting it into the hands of the people that need it, is really hard,” Food Finders Executive Director Katy Bunder said. “We deal with logistics and transportation every day. This just made our life a lot easier.”
Founded in 1981, the food bank serves 15 counties in north central Indiana. They distribute more than seven million pounds of food every year to those in need. As an advocate for food redistribution, they offer public education on hunger-related issues.
From the Wabash Trailers website, “Wabash National Corporation’s Commercial Trailer Products business is the leading producer of semi-trailers in North America. Since 1985 we’ve revolutionized the trailer industry, building a legacy of innovation that has been recognized with over 70 patents and counting. From a full line of dry vans to refrigerated vans, intermodal equipment, and platform trailers, we set new standards in design and performance.”
