Donate Your Truck and Make it Famous!

Feb 8, 2011 by

Do you have an older truck that you're trying to sell or get rid of? Consider donating your truck for an awesome cause and launch your truck into fame! Truck Farm ( is a nonprofit that gets local farmers to find used trucks, fill up the bed with dirt, plant a garden, and drive the Truck Farm around to visit kids in urban areas and teach them about where their food comes from. Truck Farm was started up by Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, the makers of King Corn, a Peabody-award winning documentary about the production of corn in the U.S. The Truck Farm pilot program started up in Brooklyn, New York last year and had folks like Michael Pollan and Alice Waters working on the project. Now Truck Farm's goal is to launch 25 Truck Farms around the U.S. to continue to spread the word as far and wide as possible. Our Bay Area Truck is already gathering some big sponsors who are super excited about this project. Your truck, once adopted by our Bar Area Truck Farmer, will become a fun and memorable symbol of food education and food justice. It will likely be featured in press releases, regular blog posts, and become loved by kids and adults alike. Doesn't that sound like the best second life you could want for your truck? We think so! If you're interested in donating or partially donating your truck (or would like more info about Truck Farm in general), please contact me ( and let me know as soon as possible. I can't wait to hear from you!
