ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (WDRB) -- A group traveling the state to feed hungry children just got a new way to get there.
The Kentucky Heartland Chapter of Feeding America picked up the keys to a brand new Highlander SUV at Swope Toyota in Elizabethown, Wednesday morning, Jan. 22.
The non-profit group is a recipient of Toyota's "100 Cars for Good" program, in which the company is giving away 100 cars to 100 non-profits over the course of 50 days.
An online vote decides the winners.
"Our staff is going to be so happy with this to be able to travel around through our areas safe, secure and in luxury. This is just wonderful for our food bank," said Gary Miles, executive director of the Kentucky Heartland Chapter of Feeding America.
The Kentucky Heartland Chapter of Feeding America helps 125,000 people a year through 200 food pantries in 42 Kentucky counties.
The group also fills backpacks with food for the weekend for needy children throughout the state.
