CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Michigan-based supercenter Meijer has donated several semi-tractors to local food banks, academic organizations and law enforcement throughout the Midwest, including Cincinnati and Fairfield.

A total of 35 truck were donated, including two to the Freestore Foodbank in Cincinnati and two to Shared Harvest in Fairfield, Ohio.

The 35 tractors had previously been in use in the Meijer truck fleet and were recently replaced when the company purchased new, near-zero emission tractors. All of the trucks have been reconditioned and prepped for their next use, including a multi-point safety inspection and new graphics specific to each local food bank.

"Everyone at Meijer is very excited about the opportunity to make such a large donation to these important organizations," said Keyes. "Meijer focuses on supporting the communities where our customers and team members work and live, and we are proud to be able to provide this level of support for organizations that do such important work."

The food banks were chosen because helping combat hunger has been a primary focus of Meijer.
