The collaboration will benefit the Tri-State Food Bank.

Atlas Van Lines has been a prominent business in Evansville for as long as I can remember, and I’ve been an Evansville resident since day one 36 years ago. In that time, they’ve become one of the leading moving companies in the nation, and never hesitate to help the community it’s called home for decades.

Move for Hunger is nation-wide non-profit “who fights nationwide hunger by gathering non-perishable food items from household moves and collections to deliver to local communities’ food banks,” according to a press release from the agency representing Atlas Van Lines.

The food drive will take place on Friday, February 1st from 8am-4pm at all Schnucks locations in Evansville, and Atlas Van Lines headquarters at the intersection of Highway 41 and St. George Road on Evansville’s north side.

Atlas will provide trucks at each Schnucks location to collect donations from the public. Shetler Moving & Storage Inc., a local Atlas agent, will also be donating two trucks to the food drive effort. The items will be delivered to the Tri-State Food Bank, which services 33 counties in Indiana, Kentucky and Illinois, at the conclusion of the drive.

The community is encouraged to donate non-perishable food items such as cereal, soup, vegetables, pasta, rice and peanut butter.
