One in nine North Dakotans don’t have enough food to eat.
Trucks supplying fresh fruit, vegetables, and meats were in Minot all in an effort to combat this issue.
The effort was all a part of the Great Plains Food Bank Perishable Food Program.
With the help of volunteers from the Salvation Army, the Great Plains organization supplied over 300 Minot residents in need of food assistance.
Individuals who attended were asked to state which county they reside in to determine which ones have the most need.
“We were wondering where going to get the money to get meat, fruits, and veggies instead of getting on the bare necessities. So this is definitely going to change the pantry a little bit and add a little flavor, you know taste in our pantry so that were not just eating pasta and pasta sauce you know. So this definitely puts a smile on my face as you can see,” said Minot Resident Eddie Ramos. .
The Great Plains Food Bank Perishable Food Program will continue to host these pop-ups through out the year.
