GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - With food collections going on across Mesa County, you have to get a bit clever to stand out from the rest. One local construction business decided to make a play on words and "Dump Hunger."

Sorter construction would like to fill a dump truck with family-size non-perishable food items.

The construction company wanted to make sure the donations benefit the Grand Junction community, so the food will be dumped off at the Community Food Bank at the end of this week.

"It was an idea we had in the office and had a lot of support from our employees and the community. We just thought it was a good thing to do. We know the food would stay here," says Bill Ogle, owner of Sorter Construction.

Sorter Construction will have a dump truck at a different location every day until Friday, Dec. 4. With the dump truck, there will be a Sorter employee on site to answer any questions.

Below is a list of time and locations:
Tuesday, Dec. 1
8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the City Market at 1st and Rood
1 to 5 p.m. at the City Market on North Avenue

Wednesday, Dec. 2
