A fourth refrigerated truck was added to Saving Grace's fleet last month to meet growing demand for our food rescue and delivery services. Purchase of the truck was funded with a grant from the Harper Family Foundation.
Betsy Murphy, Harper Family Foundation spokesperson, said they were impressed by the passion of the Saving Grace team. "You are making an impact on so many in our community by providing good nutritious food that would otherwise be wasted. It was such an easy decision for the Harper Family Foundation to unanimously support your mission and the good work you are doing everyday."

Addition of another truck allowed Saving Grace to set the ambitious goal of rescuing 1,290,000 pounds of food this year.
Saving Grace began operations in October 2013 with one used refrigerated truck. The fleet has expanded as trucks reached capacity.
Saving Grace currently picks up food from 51 food donor locations and delivers it the same day to 39 nonprofit agency locations.
