“Grant funding from Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless was used to purchase a walkie pallet truck. This equipment purchase has substantially improved our warehouse operations by easing maneuverability of food movement. With over 2,000,000 pounds of food moving through our warehouse annually, this enhancement is significantly increasing our efficiency and ability to feed more people in need.
For the past 3 weeks, we have been receiving 22 pallets twice a week from US Foods, one of America’s leading food distributors servicing restaurants, the healthcare industry, and more. We expect this new partnership to be on-going and are tremendously grateful for the addition of a walkie pallet truck to our warehouse resources.” – Melissa Cavanaugh, Grants Associate
