Trucks for Change will do you good

November 18, 2016 John G. Smith

TORONTO, ON — My short-lived career as a competitive picker and packer could be in jeopardy.

Newcom Business Media, the publisher of Today’s Trucking, was the defending champion in the second-annual Trucks for Change food sorting challenge at Toronto’s Daily Bread Food Bank on November 16. Eight 10-member teams committed an hour to tear into pallets of donated food, check expiry dates, and load boxes for shipping. (What charitable work could be closer to the trucking industry than that?) And while new to the team, I’ve helped out at food banks before. In the lexicon of athletes everywhere, I was a ringer. The trash talk flowed with ease because, well, charity and all that.
