A new Vinnies Soup Van has hit the road. This van was made possible with the funds that the Woodards team raised during the 2021 CEO Sleepout. This is vehicle #8 from Woodards, made possible from the ongoing fundraising and support of the community. The vans enables Vinnies to reach more people, serve more food, transport more food, more often.
This van is refrigerated and perfect for the transport of fresh fruit and vegetable. The concept of the mobile pantry originated post Covid where the Soup Van volunteers received feedback from the people Vinnies deliver to, that they really liked receiving the food hampers, as it allows people to prepare their own meals.
We are delighted to see the 8th van on the road!
