"The Dayton Foundation is proud to support The Foodbank's efforts to feed the hungry in Greater Dayton and keep edible food out of the landfill through food rescue and local farm fresh produce gleaning," said Michael M. Parks, president of The Dayton Foundation.

The new truck was part of a $500,000 grant from UnitedHealthcare last year to the Ohio Association of Foodbanks.

The grant assisted with new refrigeration units or vehicles to assist with delivering access to fresh food.
