‘Fill a Truck’ Campaign Helps Golden Valley Food Shelf As Donations Drop
Two Men and a Truck held its annual “Fill a Truck for the Holidays” event by collecting food items outside of the Hy-Vee store in New Hope.
“A lot of people may not think it’s worth a can or two but if everybody gave one can imagine how much food we would be able to offer these families,” said Sally Flinck with Two Men and a Truck.
Food collected benefited Golden Valley nonprofit PRISM. The food drive was especially important as many food shelves have seen a surge in demand, while donations have dwindled due to inflation and tighter budgets.
The goal was to fill a 26-foot moving truck with nonperishable food.
