It was an exciting day for Foodlink drivers, who watched as a brand new, 22-foot refrigerated box truck was dropped off at its Mt. Read Boulevard facility on Friday.
The new truck, a 2018 HINO model 238, will add capacity to the fleet that serves the Foodlink Community Kitchen. Approximately half of Foodlink’s trucks serve the kitchen, while the other half pick up and distribute food for the food bank.
Conway Beam Leasing custom-built the truck for Foodlink from the ground up. Fleet Manager David Dukes was eager to see the new vehicle, and wanted to recognize Conway’s Brandon Piccarreto, Leasing Representative, and Ed Dunlop, Western NY Director of Operations, for their help with this build.
The truck will hit the road on Monday, delivering meals produced by the Community Kitchen to meal sites at various after-school programs across Rochester.
