ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Charitable groups plan to team up this weekend to distribute two truckloads of food and essentials to help 800 families.

Organizers have identified the families who will each receive a 25-pound box of food and a box of personal care items during the distribution Saturday at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton. The items distributed by volunteers are designed to help a family of four for a week.

The effort is part of a national effort by Feed The Children and Speedway Children’s Charities to help needy families. The organizations plan to give out about 540,000 pounds of food and supplies this year on behalf of Atlanta Motor Speedway, Kentucky Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Infineon Raceway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway.
