MEMPHIS, Tenn.(localmemphis.com)- More than 100 AutoZone employees volunteered their time tohelp stock the Mid-South Food Bank in Southeast Memphis.

Volunteers helped to put food on the shelves of the AutoZoneAgency Market Saturday.

Made like an AutoZone retail store, the store’s objective is tohold food so that families can go through and “shop” for what theyneed.

After everything was moved, volunteers stayed to help pack foodboxes.

“We have a culture of giving back we have roots of investing inthis community,” said David McKinney, AutoZone’sVice President of Government Community Relations. “We’vemade some recent investments, and we want to continue that spirit of giving andpouring into the community that we love.”

Organizers with the Mid-South Food Bank say it’s important thatduring this move, the organization has minimal disruption to its partner foodpantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other agencies they serve.

The food bank and AutoZone have been working together since 1979.
