Our longtime donor Southland (7/ Eleven) has had some major restructuring of their logistics contracts. Those are the folks that actually handle the perishable products for 7/Eleven Stores.
The poundage has been down over the pasted few months and that explains it. On the up side of that is we will be going to Lakeland, starting May 1st. to pick up some of the Orlando’s 7/11 warehouse which closes April 30th, then our Tampa location is slated to close in June with all of that also going to Lakeland.
We are negotiating with Second Harvest Orlando for the days, the pick up remains primarily TBH but we have been asked to share, as the volume will be double what it was. We will keep at least four days.
