Ford donates food-filled truck to Dare to Care

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Ford is making sure it's a driving force in the fight against hunger.  "The need for food assistance in this community has never been higher than it is right now," says Brian Riendeau, the Executive Director of Dare to Care.

Tuesday, as part of an 11-year partnership, Ford donated a new refrigerated truck loaded with food for the Dare to Care Food Bank.  The truck will be used to help the organization deliver food to the hundreds of thousands of people in need in our area.

Last year Dare to Care provided more than 15 million pounds of food to 192,000 people in the 13-county area it serves.

Dare to Care says dealing with the growing need isn't discouraging, especially when so many great people in the community are pitching in to help out.
