BUFFALO, N.Y. — An effort to feed families in need in Western New York had a setback last fall when fire damaged the Daily Bread food truck, but Sunday a new truck was unveiled.
The Daily Bread food truck and mission has a "get one, give one" philosophy. The truck sells meals during the summer and fall then donates 100% of the money to deliver home-cooked meals to people in need in the winter.
Last year, Daily Bread sold 1,450 meals which allowed them to deliver 1,700 between December 2018 and April 2019.
There was a fundraising campaign to replace the damaged truck, and John and Carolyn Yurtchuk and the Dengler, Roberts, Perna Funeral Home Group pitched in to buy a gently-used, larger truck.
Total Automotive, Amton Automotive, and Advanced Auto Parts teamed up to fix up the old truck, which is now serving up meals in a designated location.
