Aiding Food Banks
USA-Containers Contributes to aiding Food Banks Across the Nation.
We are aiding food banks throughout the country. How? By donating labor and selling refrigerated (reefer) containers at reduced rates. Refrigerated containers help to transport perishable goods. Also, they expand a food bank’s coverage for distributing and receiving donations.
Refrigerated Containers or Reefers
Here in Illinois, we are assisting numerous food banks throughout the country. We are able to do this by donating labor and selling reefer containers at reduced rates. Further more, these refrigerated containers help food banks by providing large mobile spaces to collect or transport food donations.
We are taking the initiative in various communities throughout the US. By making refrigerated containers more accessible to local food banks. Most importantly, not-for-profit organizations can expand their operations and receive or distribute donations to more areas than ever!
“We are always looking for more ways to contribute to the community.” Mike Alecock, owner of USA-Containers, had to say about the recent refrigerated container sales. “We try to stay involved locally as a family-owned business. So, having the chance to reach out to more communities beyond our own has been a rewarding experience for us.”
Why Food Banks?
Firstly, refrigerated containers are typically utilized by restaurants and food distributors. They are helpful for numerous temperature controlled applications. For food banks, reefer containers help to transport perishable goods. Also, they allow organizations to expand their radius. This allows them to reach more neighborhoods in need. We sold two refrigerated containers to food banks in 2019. Second Harvest Food Bank in St. Joseph Missouri, and Easter Illinois Food Bank in Champaign Illinois. Then, in 2020, two more food banks received these reefer storage units. Forever Fed in Woodstock Georgia, and the Salvation Army in Detroit Michigan.
