Annual Food Drive Aiming for Another Great Year

Updated: June 05, 2019 11:11 AM

Hundreds of Northland children face hunger everyday. That's why Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank and the Duluth-Superior Transportation Association team up each year. The two groups are doing their part to solve this problem.

Their annual "Fill-a-Truck, Feed-a-Family Food and Fund Drive" begins Thursday, June 6. Now in its sixth year, organizers say the event has grown exponentially. 

"We started with one store and one truck," Jay Baker with the Duluth-Superior Transportation Association said. "Now, we have three trailers that are involved...and 10 stores we're collecting from."

The truck trailers will be parked at Super One Foods locations and volunteers will be there Thursday through Saturday filling the trailer with food donations from those who give. They'll be taking monetary donations, too. Organizers are hoping to raise $10,000 this year. 

Trucks will be at the following Super One Foods locations: 

  • Cloquet
  • Duluth - Miller Hill
  • Superior - Harbor View

Food and/or monetary donations will be accepted at these locations:

  • Duluth - Kenwood
  • Duluth - Lakeside
  • Duluth Plaza
  • Pike Lake
  • Superior - Oakes Avenue
  • Two Harbors
  • West Duluth

All donations go toward Second Harvest.
