And it’s AWD!

In the Credit Where Credit Is Due department: kudos to Subaru of America for their automotive donation to the Food Bank of South Jersey (FBSJ). The Pennsauken-based food distribution agency will use the 2009 Tribeca to make smaller deliveries that don’t require a truck.

And that’s not all the Cherry Hill, N.J.-based car maker is doing. They also collected more than 18 tons of food in 2009’s image courtesy of Subaru EnthusiastsDrive Out Hunger food drive and donated some of the bounty from their Share the Love garden at their headquarters.

Following Subaru’s lead, I think there’s a real opportunity for car companies to get some nice publicity by making similar donations (and not just on this blog). One auto maker could even become the official food recovery vehicle of a state, region or–why not–nation.

Getting back to the Tribeca, it’s a useful donation because it will be reliable and get much better mileage (18 mpg) than whatever box truck the FBSJ was using previously. Plus, that AWD (all-wheel drive) could come in handy when trying to get recovered food to the needy in winters like this one.
