Dump Hunger is a post-holiday food drive sponsored by Western States Equipment. The five-week campaign partners the 12 Western States locations with local food banks that serve their shared communities. The post-holiday timing of Dump Hunger is critical for food banks as January and February mark the lowest levels of food donations. To date Dump Hunger has gathered 3,337,000 pounds of food for the communities it serves. Dump Hunger launched on Monday, January 12th and ends on Friday, February 13th. The goal is to gather 525,000 pounds of food – equal to seven CAT 730 truckloads.
