1. Mark Singleton VP of Sales & Marketing at Southern Recipe to talk about Truck Driver Appreciation week: Sept 12-18. Truck drivers are one of the categories of front line workers who needed to be at their job this last year and a half so we’d have the spectrum of goods we need for our life. Mark talks about ways to support the truck drivers in their work, beginning with safe and kind driving. And there is a non-profit organization which helps support the drivers and their families, drivers often being independent contractors.
