Maxim Truck & Trailer Donates $50,000 to 10 Food Banks Across Canada

Maxim Truck & Trailer Donates $50,000 to 10 Food Banks Across Canada

(December 20, 2022, Winnipeg, MB)  Maxim Truck & Trailer is pleased to announce that for the second year, we have donated $50,000 to 10 Food Banks across Canada. Each of the 10 Food Banks received $5,000. The Food Banks were matched up to the 10 communities across Canada that Maxim Truck & Trailer does business in.

“Food Bank use rose to the highest levels in Canadian history in 2022,” says Maxim Truck & Trailer President Troy Hamilton. “We have a mandate to give back to the communities we do business in and choosing to support local food banks again this year was an easy choice. No one should go hungry.” 

According to a recent 2022 study by the Food Banks Canada, “Canada's food banks are facing uncharted challenges as turbulent economic conditions continue to exacerbate and deepen systemic inequities, especially for employed people earning low incomes, students and seniors on fixed incomes," explains Food Banks Canada CEO Kirstin Beardsley.
