The Fast Park family of off-site airport parking companies, with 16 facilities in 12 markets, launches its 4th annual Canned Food Drive from September 5th through the 29th in support of National Hunger Action Month. Market specific collections will benefit local food bank members of Feeding America, the largest food bank network in the country. In addition to collecting food, Fast Park will donate one dollar for every pound of non-perishable food donated by customers.

Food banks across the country are struggling to keep up with demand this year. According to Feeding America, 1 out of 6 people are struggling with hunger. In 2010 Fast Park collected over two tons of food to distribute to hungry families. In addition, Fast Park also donated one dollar for every pound of food collected locally, to aid in their mission.

“As a company we are always seeking ways to give back to causes in which we believe,” said Melanie Chavez who oversees construction and branding for Fast Park. “Hunger is an epidemic in our communities, and we believe every donation makes a difference. The annual Canned Food Drive brings our employees and customer together to work toward a common goal. Every year I am impressed with the generosity of our customers, last year we doubled the previous year’s donation.”
