TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Beginning April 6, Vigo County School Corporation is changing the way it distributes food and Commissioner Brendan Kearns, as well as other county employees are revving their engines to help.
Kearns says he and his “Blue Truck Calvary” will be giving food to students in remote areas in the county. They will provide meals from the back of their blue trucks.
Food will now be given out on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays only from 11 a.m. until noon. Children will be given two days’ worth of meals on Monday and Wednesday and one days’ worth of meals on Friday.
“The goal is to get food out to kids who may not have been able to get it before. The school corp. has done an incredible job on getting the food out. We’re just stepping up to help to make sure that kids who may be going without get the food that’s available to them,” said Kearns.
Kearns says drivers of the Blue Truck Calvary will show their county photo ID’s. They will also have their hazard lights on, showing that they are a reliable food distribution source.
