ORIGINAL STORY: The Duluth Superior Transportation Association is doing its part to help provide more food to those in need.
Their Fill-a-Truck, Feed a Family event is underway at Super Ones across the Twin Ports area.
It runs Thursday through Saturday.
Shoppers can drop off money, or they can purchase bags of food that Super One has put together.
“We coincided the timing of the event for when school is getting out,” explained Richie Rochel, the event organizer and controller for Halvor Lines. “We really want to stock up the food shelves in the area.”
There are trailers at the Miller Hill, Harbor View in Superior, and Cloquet locations. But you can make a donation at: Duluth Lakeside, West Duluth, Oakes Ave Superior, Duluth Plaza, Duluth Kenwood, Two Harbors, and Pike Lake.
Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank is receiving the donations. Last year, enough came in for 45,000 meals.
“It’s a critical time for families,” said Christine Lunde, Development Director for Second Harvest. “With the end of pandemic era benefits, and inflation. We are seeing a 34% increase at our food shelf, and we saw a record number of families last month.”

Boy Scouts are helping this year as well, and the Salvation Army in Cloquet is also benefiting from the generosity of the community.
