It's Been a Rough Road for Our Clients and Our Vans

Recently, some of our clients were expecting to receive their meals, but the delivery driver didn't arrive.

It wasn't because the meals hadn't been prepared, or that the driver forgot them when he loaded the van, it was because the van broke down due to the wear and tear of traveling 135 miles a day over the last 10 years.

Thankfully, a staff member was able to deliver the meals later that day but I'm not sure about the next time. Your gift today can help add a new van to our fleet.

Our 7-person delivery team drives 1,356 miles a day. Today, we have four vans in need of repairs which means fewer vehicles on the road providing clients with the food they need to manage their illness.

Your gift is urgently needed to help cover the $55,360 purchase of a new refrigerated van and ensure meal deliveries to all of those who need and rely on our service.

Now, here is the good news; a generous donor has agreed to match contributions for a new van with a gift of $25,000.

So, I really need your help. Your steadfast commitment means that when the call comes from whoever is in need we are ready to make the next delivery. I’m counting on you. But most importantly, so are our clients.

Together, we can make a difference,

Craig Shniderman
Executive Director, Food & Friends

P.S. Please donate today to help purchase a much-needed refrigerated van and to help provide specialized meals to those in our community living with life-challenging illnesses. Please don’t wait to have your gift matched! I can’t stress enough how much your support can help.
