More families in need will be able to receive food due to a new, HonorHealth Desert Mission Food Bank refrigerated food truck unveiled last month.
The new truck will allow HonorHealth Desert Mission Food Bank at 9229 N. 4th St. to pick up donated foods to supply the food bank for families around Maricopa County. It is the first donation of this caliber for the food bank and a major upgrade for the equipment needed. The food bank was given a $125,000 fundraising donation to help buy the truck. It is expected to bring in 3.6 million pounds of food for more than three-million meals this year. The food is given to the most vulnerable people in the community. The truck replaces one that is more than 10 years old.
