Local Heroes On Wheels.
The spirit of people who are with us, to help out in days of trouble, come in all shapes and sizes. Some arrive in trucks, like the Adopt-a-Block Food Distribution folks. They have silently been delivering free food since last June. Their stops include Cash Wise stores, Dan's SuperMarkets, Natural Grocers and others. The Adopt-a-Block Food delivers to low-income families in Bismarck/Mandan and surrounding areas. They have served people 2 days a week, and are stepping up to go out and about for 5 days a week.
They aren't just dropping off a loaf of bread here and there, they have been at South Central High School and Jeannette Myhre Elementary distributing about 20,000-25,000 pounds of grocery products. The coronavirus has caused several food pantries to temporarily close, therefore extending the days the Adopt-a-Block Food truck will be delivering. Their longer week schedule begins today.
