A food drive on wheels filled trucks to feed families over the weekend.

The drive runs from Friday to Sunday at Cub Foods on Central Entrance in Duluth. Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank teams up with the Duluth-Superior Transportation Association to fill a 53-foot truck with food donations.

Jay Baker, the president of the transportation association, said a lot of food comes in around Christmas, but they need just as many donations in June. He said many kids getting out of school no longer have food programs to support them.

"It's providing food," Baker said. "It's helping people out. There's three basic things that people need in life. They need food, water, and they need shelter, and this is one of the three. TAnd there are people in our community that don't have food."

The truck is in the Cub Foods parking lot on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
