Thank you to everyone who donated to our box truck transport fund. Because of you, food will keep moving to families in need. Check back to see the new truck you made possible in action. Soon it will travel thousands of miles annually, rescuing food from grocery stores and transporting meals to underserved communities.
You can help keep food moving along to families in need.
Our box truck has made its final delivery. Its tires are worn. The liftgate is broken. Its electrical system is faulty. It failed its most recent inspection, and repairs will cost more than it’s worth. We need your help to purchase a replacement vehicle.
We put our 2001 Isuzu box truck in service in 2010. Since then, we have driven it thousands of miles to pick up food donations from hundreds of grocery stores and warehouses. We depend on donated food to feed thousands of hungry families annually. On average, we rescue nearly 50,000 pounds of food every month from local retailers and wholesalers.
Although we have other vehicles, we rely on our box truck. It’s the perfect size to maneuver in congested areas and to pick up loads too big for our vans. It’s also our preferred vehicle for Mobile Pantry operations that deliver food to vulnerable populations and underserved communities.
A gently used, new to us truck will cost about $40,000. That’s the bad news. Now the good news. One of our beloved donors, who is also a volunteer and knows how vital a reliable box truck is to our mission, has stepped up to kick off a campaign to purchase a replacement vehicle with a $5,000 donation.
GREAT NEWS! Your donation will go twice as far. The ACFB Foundation will match truck donations up to $20,000!
