Mini Owners Motor Across The Country To Provide 800,000 Meals

MINI owners have been known to be a special group of car owners. They get together every two years for a special event held by MINI USA called Mini Takes The States (MTTS) and this years event is raising money for Feeding America.

The target of MTTS 2016 is to provide more than 800,000 meals to families in need, and at the start of the motoring adventure at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Rowena Norman, speaking on behalf of Feeding America, told motorers that the campaign had already passed a total of almost 650,000 meals.

“One in seven families in this country are facing hunger and every dollar raised helps to feed 11 families and working together we can solve hunger,” she told participants before predicting that the MTTS target would be almost certainly surpassed thanks to their generosity so far.

Feeding America is the nation’s largest relief organization of its kind dedicated to fighting hunger through a network of food banks.

Participants in MTTS 2016 are contributing in various ways, including raising funds and awareness as they motor across the country. They are bringing food donations directly to the start of the event each day where a local MINI dealer collects donations and deliver them to a local Feeding America food bank and they are taking part in volunteer activations at food banks in their own communities or along the MTTS route.
