Southern Recipe announced it will honor the more than 3.5 million hard working truck drivers in the U.S. who travel nearly 400 billion miles each year with its 6th Annual Truck Driver Appreciation campaign.

From Aug. 1-Sept. 17, truck drivers, families and consumers are invited to learn more about Truck Driver Appreciation Week and pork rinds. Visitors will earn a chance to win $2,500 by submitting a photo of themselves or their rig (if they are a truck driver) or of a truck driving friend. Other prizes are also available to win, and each photo submitted will help the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund (SCF) earn a $2,500 donation.

Winners will be announced, and the charity donation will occur after Truck Driver Appreciation Week, Sept. 11-17, 2017.

“When it comes to the food industry, none of us would be here without our truck drivers,” said Mark Singleton, vice president of sales and marketing, Southern Recipe and Rudolph Foods.  “Last year, we worked hard to help St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund to raise awareness and support even more trucker drivers, and that’s something we’re really proud of.  This year, we aim to make an even deeper impact.” 

“We’re thrilled to partner with Southern Recipe again this year and support our road warriors,” said Shannon Currier, director of philanthropy and development at SCF. “We hope the community supports this year’s ‘Rig on the Road’ campaign in a big way.  This is a fun way to give back and show what life on the road looks like!”
