Refrigerated truck donation expected to help feed those in need

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recently donated a refrigerated semi-truck to an active non-profit in an attempt to ensure more people in need can receive fresh food. 

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints donated the truck to the Regional Inter-Faith Association in Jackson, Tennessee in addition to the $280,000 worth of food donations they have already made this year. 

Executive Director Lisa Tillman says that the truck is a major upgrade to the non-profit’s operations, and will make an impact on their day-to-day duties. She plans to put the truck to work as soon as possible. 

“It will make a huge impact in the work that we’re doing, providing food to the community through all the different programs and ministries that we have,” Tillman said.

“This is a need for them to have….  help transporting food around the community and around West Tennessee,” said Aaron Raab, with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
