As the holidays approach, four more Ford F-550 trucks join a fleet of more than 100 Ford trucks and vans at food banks in all 50 states delivering healthy, perishable food to the needy
Ford Executive Chairman Bill Ford presented the keys to a new refrigerated Ford F-550 truck to Gleaners Community Food Bank Monday as part of Partnership for Hunger Relief started by Ford and Paul Newman.
Twelve years ago, Paul Newman reached out to see how Ford Motor Company could join Newman's Own to address the critical need for fresh food for families facing hunger
Since that time, the partnership between the two companies has delivered more than 209 million meals to people across the country.
