A new cargo van is helping feed the hungry in Exeter, New Hampshire. The van, worth over $35,000, was donated to The Saint Vincent de Paul Food Pantry by the Exeter Area New Cars Dealers Association, which includes Hurlbert Toyota, a non-profit collaboration between car dealers in the area. The Saint Vincent de Paul Food Pantry is using the new van in order to deliver meals to members of the city who are in need.

“The new van will be used transport tons of supplies and food – about 135 tons” says Cleo Castonguay, Exeter’s Society of Saint Vincet de Paul’s president.

In 2012-2013, the nonprofit had donated over 269,700 pounds of food, with a value of $730,000. These food items went into making over 190,000 meals. For the 2014 year, $1 million dollars worth of food has already been distributed.

The van includes trunk doors that open all the way so they touch the sides of the vehicle, which eliminates excess space when trying to back the vehicle right up to a loading dock, a rear-view camera that allows the driver to maneuver in reverse safely, and a sunken floor that adds on an additional foot of space for cargo.
