'Man in a Van' rescues 140,000 pounds of food for local pantries

The so-called “Man in a Van” has rescued nearly 140,000 pounds of food since October for delivery in the Danbury area. 


Mike Greene has been driving miles each day picking up food from local grocery stores to bring to local food pantries.  The pantries are part of the Danbury Food Collaborative, which is helping to feed hungry families and individuals who struggle to afford food.  The Danbury resident is the former coordinator of the food pantry for Danbury’s Interfaith AIDS Ministry, and continues to work there part-time. 


In 82 days, Greene has driven 5,084 miles around Greater Danbury, rescuing 138,673 pounds of fresh food.  


The Connecticut Food Bank provides Greene with a food delivery van.  United Way of Western Connecticut covers the van's insurance and gas.  Danbury Food Collaborative is looking to to formalize the role and sustain the effort by hiring a driver.  Danbury Food Collaborative has set up a GoFundMe page with a goal of $7,000 to enable them to rescue more than 400,000 pounds of food per year.
