Food bank rolls out first hybrid delivery truck
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The San Francisco Food Bank rolled out its first hybrid delivery truck Wednesday.
The new truck will allow the food bank to deliver an additional 8,500 pounds of food per month on a third less fuel. The new vehicles will reduce air pollution and meet statewide emissions standards.
Donations from the community helped buy the truck.
Over the next five years, the agency hopes to replace all of the diesel in their fleet with hybrid and electric vehicles.
The food bank has delivered more than 39 million pounds of food to the community so far this year.
