Food for Lane County donationEUGENE, Ore. — Managers of a local food bank walked away with keys to a brand new Toyota van Thursday.

FOOD For Lane County beat out hundreds of other nonprofits in a national competition called 100 Cars for Good. The winner brought in the most votes on Facebook.

Thanks to all FOOD For Lane County’s supporters, the nonprofit now has the keys to a 2014 Sienna with a six-year, 100,000-mile warranty.

“We were over-the-moon excited. The whole process has been amazing to watch just from start to finish–the whole process to even win the car,” said Karen Edmonds, FOOD For Lane County.

Toyota even filled the trunk with food. The organization plans to use the new vehicle to deliver emergency food boxes to food pantries in rural area and serve seniors who can’t leave home.
