Man Loading Food Into Truck

Hasbrouck Heights Food Rescue Organization’s Delivery Truck is Recovered

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ – A Hasbrouck Heights food rescue organization’s truck which was stolen early Monday has been recovered, according to the organization. 

The truck was found in a commercial lot in Lodi, according to Maria Sinopoli, Director of Marketing Communications. Aside from some minor damage and a stolen GPS tracking system, the truck will be back up and running and making deliveries, she said.  According to the Lodi Police Department, the investigation is ongoing.

A Table to Table refrigerator delivery truck was stolen from the lot in Lodi early Monday morning at 2:14 am. The discovery was made by the driver. The group is now down to five trucks to deliver food to sites throughout four counties in northern New Jersey.

The operations team is working to ensure that food rescues are being made. This situation comes at a particularly challenging time, as the organization’s entire fleet of trucks was destroyed in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida in September 2021. It was forced to use rental trucks for nearly a year due to supply issues. The group will now incur additional transportation expenses due to the loss. 

Table to Table is a community-based food rescue program that collects prepared and perishable food and delivers it to organizations serving the hungry in the Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Passaic counties of New Jersey.
