But Toyota’s initial offer to the charity in 2011 was met with apprehension. “They make cars; I run a kitchen,” said Daryl Foriest, director of distribution at the Food Bank’s pantry and soup kitchen in Harlem. “This won’t work.” When Toyota insisted it would, Mr. Foriest presented the company with a challenge. “The line of people waiting to eat is too long,” Mr. Foriest said. “Make the line shorter.”
