Volunteers Melinda Jones, Kraft employee, and John Wampler, regional coordinator with the Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri, prepare for a day of donations in the Schnucks parking lot on Monday. Kraft donated the truck as a mobile pantry, enabling the Food Bank to reach areas in Missouri that don't have traditional food pantries. The truck has multiple doors that open up on each side, with refrigerator and freezer capabilities as well as dry or canned food storage. "Kraft gave us this truck to get more fresh fruits and vegetables to people," said Peggy Kirkpatrick, executive director of the Food Bank.
