Volunteers Build Truck Made of Canned Goods
It's a souped up truck on a mission. Food pantry volunteers stacked more than 12,000 canned goods as part of their Drive Hunger Relief initiative. Southern Ford Dealers employees provided the food for the Bread of the Mighty Food Bank and Catholic Charities.
The canned items including tomato soup and beans will go to children who are in the backpack program, which provides food for children over the weekends. Most of the truck is made up of tomato soup. That's because it's the most needed item for food banks, and they wanted the truck to be red.
The truck will be on display at the Oaks Mall in Gainesville through Wednesday, May 1st.
