A refrigerated truck will be joining our fleet!
That's right... we now have have a real truck (rather than just a hodgepodge of vehicles) to pick up and transfer donated food from one location to another.
As a partner agency of The Greater Cleveland Food Bank, BNOC was awarded a $50,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation to fund this incredible truck. This generous gift will help us distribute more nutritious food to families-in-need in the Clearfork Valley. We now have the capacity to transport an additional 400,000 pounds of food annually, which includes more than 200,000 pounds of fresh produce.
BNOC and the Food Bank are also working with Catholic Charities Toledo Dioceses and Grace Episcopal Church to provide more fresh food to their feeding programs as well.
A special thank-you to the Walmart Foundation and Cleveland Food Bank for their incredible support in bolstering our operation. We never would have imagined years ago, when handing out food bags from a church closet, that we'd grow into an operation of this capacity. We could not be more grateful for the continued support of our community in reaching out to those in-need.
