Ford & Hispanic Federation Team Up to Fight Hunger in the NYC Latino Community

Ford Donation of Transit Connect Van Central to ‘Partners on the Go’ Initiative

Ford Motor Company Fund and the Hispanic Federation launched a hunger relief initiative, Partners on the Go, today through the donation of 15,000 meals to the Southside United Housing Development Fund Corp’s (Los Sures) food pantry. The main goal of this anti-hunger effort is to raise awareness of food insecurity within Latino communities and implement a grassroots hunger relief action plan to help alleviate it.

A central component of the initiative is Ford’s donation of a Transit Connect van to the Hispanic Federation.
