During their presentation to Amplify Mission Network (formerly Barnabas) in 2014, Every Meal (formerly The Sheridan Story) asked for ideas on acquiring a refrigerated truck to facilitate storage and distribution of the food they distribute through schools to kids who might otherwise go hungry over the weekends. Partner members offered suggestions, advice and words of caution during the table discussions. Was a truck the right approach? How would they handle insurance, maintenance and storage? One member made a personal introduction to a local car dealership who helped Every Meal think through the costs and benefits of owning a refrigerated truck. Shortly after, Every Meal acquired a refrigerated trailer from another supporter, but needed a truck to pull the trailer. The combination of the relationship with the car dealership made through Amplify Mission Network and a matching gift provided by another member meant that Every Meal was able to purchase a new truck at a great price. To top it off, the dealership has since provided volunteers to help Every Meal pack meals for kids.
