TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Second Harvest's mission is to fight hunger in the Big Bend area and on Friday they got a little help in doing just that.

Legacy Toyota, a longtime partner of Second Harvest, presented the organization with a $10,000 check that will provide 40,000 meals for those in need in the Big Bend.

Legacy Toyota is also one of Second Harvest's first business partners that's not a non-profit or school.

"We've got a 70,000 square foot facility, we have 150 employees, and we're, like, 'You know, we want to help out,'" said Peter Boulware, the owner of Legacy Toyota. "We want to be a part of the solution, so we're just happy to give out 300 meals between 11 [a.m.] and 2 [p.m.] today."

"What's really amazing is the flexibility and the willingness to be innovative," said Monique Ellsworth, the CEO of Second Harvest of the Big Bend. "And Legacy Toyota, and Peter and his team have really shown when their community needs help, they'll do whatever they can to meet that need."

Starting next week, Legacy Toyota will have 150 kid friendly boxes of food, and may partner with Second Harvest to do another food distribution in the future.\
