Tampa-area residents can “drive the drive” as the Southern Ford Dealers and Feeding America Tampa Bay are partnering to launch the Southern Ford Dealers’ yearlong Driving Hunger Relief program. Beginning tomorrow and running through September 10, residents can take part in a variety of activities to raise up to 100,000 meals for Feeding America in the Southern Ford Dealer communities.
Southern Ford Dealers will donate two meals for each new fan of the Southern Ford Dealers’ Facebook page, 10 meals for each new vehicle test drive, and 100 meals for every vehicle purchased during the kickoff period.
“Feeding America Tampa Bay is grateful to be a part of the Southern Ford Dealers’ unique hunger relief initiative,” said Pat Rogers, CEO of the west central Florida regional food bank. “Florida’s children and families are ranked fourth in the nation for hunger, and this program is a wonderful way for people in this area to help their neighbors in need. We hope the residents of Tampa Bay will participate in this effort and support our mission: Ending Hunger, Nourishing Hope.”
“The Southern Ford Dealer group is committed to helping local families and individuals in the communities we serve. We’re excited to partner with Feeding America Tampa Bay and west Central Florida residents to help provide nutritious meals for thousands of our neighbors,” said Paul Clark, chairman of the Southern Ford Dealers group and owner of Paul Clark Ford in Yulee, Fla. “Ford has a long history of supporting Feeding America, and we see this program as a way to extend that commitment to our own backyards.”
According to Feeding America Tampa Bay, close to 700,000 individuals in the west central Florida area do not know when their next meal will come from, and of those, more than 250,000 are children.
All meals raised in the west central Florida-area will be donated Feeding America Tampa Bay and distributed to over 700 member agencies throughout their 10-county region.
Those interested in supporting this cause should become a fan of the Southern Ford Dealers on Facebook, or visit their nearest Ford dealer to test drive or purchase a new vehicle.
