Midas Drive Out Hunger Truck Tour update #1Mile1Meal #Detroit

In the U.S., one in six people is “food insecure”—Midas’ local franchisees launched Drive Out Hunger in the fall of 2014 to address that sad fact. Since inception, store owners of independently owned and operated locations and their employees have been running food drives, raising funds and coordinating box drops at food banks, ultimately resulting in more than 750,000 meals donated to food-insecure individuals across North America.

Across the U.S. and Canada, Midas franchisees are working with local food banks to bring food, funds and hands-on assistance to hunger- relief efforts in the communities where their customers and associates live and work. Franchisees in the Midas network invite businesses, organizations and communities nationwide to join the Drive Out Hunger campaign by donating dollars for meals.

On June 11th, a local Midas franchisee owner and her employees partnered with Forgotten Harvest Food Bank to bring food, funds and hands-on assistance to hunger-relief efforts in Detroit. More than 2,800 meals were donated to the food bank during the Midas Out Hunger event. Pictured is a Midas representative collecting non-parishable food items for donation.

Fuel the hunger-fighting road trip on social media by using #1Mile1Meal on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. For every use of the #1Mile1Meal hashtag, the Drive Out Hunger Food Truck will drive one additional mile and one additional meal will be donated until they reach 50,000 meals donated.

    What a great campaign to help get food to the hungry. My biggest top charity that I give to is my food bank. I am always concerned about others in my community not having enough food.
