Covenant Transport Drivers eat healthy and give back to the community.


Covenants Fall Safety Blitz was held at 6 terminals September 15th  - 19th, the emphasis was safe winter driving and good health.  It has long been known that many professional truck drivers suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure and other health problems resulting from prolonged lack of exercise and poor food choices while on the road.   To show drivers that eating "smart" can be delicious, each day of the event, drivers were provided healthy lunch:  turkey burgers hot off the grill on wheat buns with low-fat trimmings, chicken and lean sausages cooked in chicken broth with vegetables, baked chips, fruit, water and diet drinks. 


Drivers were also given the opportunity to donate blood at the blitz September 18th.  At the Chattanooga blitz alone, drivers gave 49 pints of blood to the local Blood Bank (Blood Assurance).
