Steinway Moving & Storage, an Atlas Van Lines agent, hosted their sixth annual Fill-a-Truck Food Drive on Saturday, April 6 from 10:00 A.M-3:00 P.M. at King Kullen grocery store in Rockville Centre, NY.
Customers were provided with a shopping list of suggested non-perishable food items -- including peanut butter, tuna, cereal, canned goods, etc. -- and were asked purchase what they could to donate and drop it off on their way out of the store. In just a few hours, Steinway Moving collected more than 500 lbs. of food, which is the equivalent of 435 meals! All of the donations were delivered to Island Harvest Food Bank.
Nearly 159,000 people on Long Island are food insecure, including 1 in 9 children. A big THANK YOU to the team at Steinway Moving & Storage for making this food drive such a success!
