Suburban Collection donates Ford Transit vans to food pantry

Suburban Collection donates Ford Transit vans to food pantry

Last year, more than 50 percent of food pantries in Macomb and Oakland Counties turned away hungry people because of an insufficient amount of food. To combat the hunger problem, the Troy-based Suburban Collection is donating two Ford Transit vans for the Ford Mobile Food Pantry initiative.
The specially-equipped vans will be used to collect and distribute food to those in need in partnership with Gleaners Community Food Bank and The United Way of Southeastern Michigan.
“The Suburban Collection is dedicated to eliminating hunger and today we’re taking the first steps to do that,” said David Fischer, The Suburban Collection CEO.
“These two vans join seven already on the road in service, combating hunger in southeast Michigan,” said Jim Vella, president, Ford Motor Company Fund.
