KTG Blog: Team KTG wins Trucks for Change / Daily Bread Food Sort Challenge.

Team KTG wins Trucks for Change / Daily Bread Food Sort Challenge.

Each November the Trucks for Change invites it’s network members to participate in a friendly competition against each other while helping the community fight hunger at the Daily Bread Food Bank’s Food Sort Challenge. For the first time since the founding of the challenge, the KTG team was victorious!

This year KTG entered a team of ten members from across our operating companies to sort 3000 lbs of food at the food bank depot. The competition is organized in two shifts of six teams that collectively sort 36,000 lbs of food during the day and raised $31,200 for the Daily Bread Food Bank. In the four years that Trucks For Change has been organizing the event teams from the transportation industry have sorted 144,000 lbs of food and donated an impressive $100,000.

The competition was tight but the team KTG finished ahead of our transportation friends. After completing the sorting we offered help to the others in the spirit of community.

Thank you to the Daily Bread Food Bank and Trucks for Change for inviting us. Also, thanks are due to our team members, Daniel Bonga, Gail Brito, Kelly Browning, Lissa DeChamplain, Joanna Foucault, Sean LeBlanc, Michelle Quintanilla, Ravi Patel, Amnit Sandhu and Tracy Wolfe for braving the first snow storm of the year to participate. We look forward to defending our title next year!
