Food banks steps up with new refrigerated food truck

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The Community Food Bank of Central Alabama has just obtained a new refrigerated food truck.

The truck will begin delivering fresh fruits and vegetables to people who cannot afford to buy healthy foods. Recipients say this will make a huge difference in the look of their dinner tables.

"It just gives us another outlet of food for these people," said Larry Logan with the food bank. "It's more nutritious and things like that. We always managed to give them the can goods and things like that, but this produce is really putting us in a different ball park."

The Community Food Bank of Central Alabama serves more than 100,000 low income folks in Jefferson County.
