For many years, acquiring a truck was at the top of Stepping Stones of Dunn County’s wish list.

The need was undeniably clear. Ever since the food rescue program began, volunteers equipped with freezer blankets provided their own vehicles to pick up soon-to-expire groceries and produce from local markets. And transporting food to the weekly “pop-up” pantries in Colfax, Downsville, Ridgeland and Sand Creek involved either borrowing – or sometimes renting – a box truck.
