Around the holiday season, the Monroe Truck Equipment team members in our Louisville, KY location worked together to make a great impact on their local community. Each team member participated in a food drive that would benefit the patrons of The Franciscan Kitchen.
The Franciscan Kitchen in Louisville, KY was founded in 1980 by Friar Jimi Fields after serving in the U.S. Navy overseas in Okinawa, Japan. After witnessing a part of the population living in poverty, and searching for food to eat, he began a plan to feed the hungry and unhoused in his new community of Louisville.
The Monroe Truck Equipment’s Office Team in Louisville suggested putting together the food drive. With many food kitchens in the Louisville area, the team chose The Franciscan Kitchen because their main focus was in preparing meals 6 days a week for the homeless and anyone in need.
Each member of the Louisville team participated in some way for this food drive. Roughly 300 food items were donated to The Franciscan Kitchen just in time for the holidays.
Throughout the years, thousands of meals have been served to the community through The Franciscan Kitchen. With such a successful food drive under their belt, the Monroe Truck Equipment team plans on hosting food drives in the future with other kitchens throughout the area.
