Truck Art!

As many of you know, we purchased a gently used box truck in October thanks to a very generous financial contribution we received from an anonymous grant.

When food is available, we are often responsible for picking it up from its source. Historically, we have used vehicles belonging to staff members, volunteers and/or board members – trucks, trailers, whatever happened to be available on a given day. As our needs have grown (and, fortunately, food donations have increased) we have found it increasingly challenging to locate vehicles that can handle the volume of food we need to retrieve, so our “new” truck was immediately put to good use!

Over the holidays we added our logo and contact information to the outside of the truck, and we wanted to share a few photos with you. We also wanted to extend our thanks to those responsible for locating and evaluating this truck — much time and effort was involved in making sure we got a great vehicle for our money. Richard Perryman and Bill Keesler (along with a few volunteers) worked very hard on this project over an extended period of time - THANK YOU!
