LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- The Gwinnett Braves have awarded a $1,000 grant to a food rescue mission in Forsyth County.
The money will help Feed the Hungry Forsyth reach its $12,000 goal and buy a refrigerated truck. Feed the Hungry Forsyth director Allen Madding said the truck will allow his organization to collect meats, vegetables and other perishable foods from restaurants and deliver them to local food pantries.
"We are thrilled to receive this grant and the support of the Gwinnett Braves," Madding said in a statement. "This grant will enable us to expand our current ministry and significantly increase the amount of food we collect and deliver to local food pantries."
Feed the Hungry Forsyth will show its gratitude to the Gwinnett Braves by featuring the team's logo on the truck .
