Local 572 Members Feed Community


Members from Local 572 in Carson, Calif. served more than 2,300 families during a community food distribution from the local union parking lot on Saturday, April 18. View more photos from the food drive, here.

The union partnered with the LA County Federation of Labor, Labor Community Services and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank for the three hour drive-through event – to ensure social distancing measures were in place.

“There are a lot of families in need right now,” said Rick Middleton, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 572 and International Vice President. “Our members have stepped up to help and are making a difference in our community. Our members have been volunteering at food banks across the region and were instrumental in making this one a success.”

Teamsters across North America have been helping their neighbors and communities through this epidemic. This is just one example of what it means to be a Teamster.
