AFC Logistics is donating three meals per load the company moves with new Feeding Tampa Bay Partnership.
TAMPA, October 26, 2022 – AFC Logistics, a leading logistics and freight company, is celebrating its new office move-in by giving back to the community through a partnership with Feeding Tampa Bay, a non-profit, hunger-relief organization. Through this partnership, AFC Logistics will give back to the community that has gracefully welcomed the logistics division.
“We’re thrilled to be able to give back to the city of Tampa, a city that’s welcomed us with open arms since we’ve relocated our headquarters from Chicagoland,” said Kyle Ingraham, president of AFC Logistics. “We spent a lot of time figuring out what was a need in the city of Tampa and the surrounding area, and food scarcity was one that was top of mind. We were excited with the idea of supporting that initiative because we, as an organization, believe that no one should go hungry.”
With this partnership, AFC Logistics will be able to serve more than just logistics customers. With every load the company moves, three meals will be donated to people of need through Feeding Tampa Bay. AFC Logistics realizes that there is still a huge population of food insecure families, all deserving to have access to food.
“As one of the nation’s top hunger relief organizations, Feeding Tampa Bay is ending hunger by fueling human potential in every family, child and senior across a 10-county region in West Central Florida – because food makes tomorrow possible,” said Jeannette Rodriguez, development officer at Feeding Tampa Bay. “We are grateful to AFC Logistics for standing alongside Feeding Tampa Bay with their support. Their incredible generosity this coming year provides food relief to the children, families and seniors in need across the 10 counties we serve.”
Feeding Tampa Bay is recognized as one of the top hunger-relief organizations in the country dedicated to ending hunger by providing meals to nearly one million food insecure families in the 10-county area of West Central Florida. By leveraging their daily connections around a meal, the non-profit organization is transforming its programs, services and partnerships to establish long-term health and capabilities in the lives of those they serve.
