Upcoming Network Partner Zoom Call
The CSR team will be hosting a Network Partner Zoom call on Wednesday, November 9, 2022 from 10:00–11:00 a.m. CST. Food Bank for the Heartland’s Transportation and Facilities Manager, Tim Smiley, will be the guest speaker.
Tim will provide a comprehensive overview detailing the day-to–day operations in his department and what it takes to get food delivered to our partners. He will also address driver and pantry expectations to insure consistency in the delivery of our services.
This is a “must attend” for our partners and is your opportunity to hear about our transportation process and ask questions directly related to delivery.
