What is a truck pull?

Here’s the deal: we tie a big rope to a moving truck and teams of 10 people compete to see who can pull it 100 feet in the fastest time. Trust us, it’s as much fun as it sounds!

3 Goals of a Truck Pull

Create Awareness
Bring your community together by shining a spotlight on both hunger and food waste.
