Hometown Hearts partnered with the Central PA Food Bank, which operates a program called Fresh Express. They will have a variety of items of all food groups. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. and the event will go until noon or until supplies last at the Lutheran Church (525 Mifflin Street).
The truck usually brings around 3,000 to 5,000 pounds of food, according to Community Outreach Coordinator Jim Kalos. He recommends bringing something strong to haul away the groceries, adding that something on wheels works best. Kalos said plastic bags will not work.
There will be runners to help make trips and if an older resident can’t make it out themselves, they can send someone in their place. Before getting in line, you must register by providing your name and address. Participants do not need to bring proof of income,
