WHAT IS DUMP HUNGER?
At Yancey Bros. Co., we recognize that our company would not be where it is today without the many employees and customers who have helped build the great state of Georgia. We want to give back to the communities who have supported us along the way as we engage in the statewide Dump Hunger Program.
We are excited to kick off our 3rd annual statewide food drive, DUMP HUNGER, to benefit the eight Regional Food Banks located throughout Georgia. The 2016 food drive will take place from July 11th to July 22nd with collection bins located at all of our Yancey facilities.
Dump Hunger is a state-wide food drive partnering the Yancey stores across Georgia with the eight regional food banks for 2 weeks. Across the state, our employees, customers, and vendors will be united in one collective goal to help those in need in our own communities. This campaign will help replenish dwindling reserves at Georgia food banks due to summer demand. Summertime is when food bank donations fall off, but demand increases because kids who depend on access to school lunch programs are eating from their household pantries. Together, we will work to Dump Hunger throughout Georgia.
