Upon returning to the office on Monday morning to resume services after the Easter weekend, Minnie’s Food Pantry staff realizes they are one truck short for pick-ups. Upon reviewing security footage, it appears the 2012 Chevrolet Express G3500 was stolen from the property at approximately 7:15 a.m. on Saturday, April 11.
“We closed this weekend to give our staff the opportunity to spend time with their families and get some well-deserved rest after working 7 days a week through the COVID-19 pandemic only to come back into work and find out one of our vehicles were stolen,” Cheryl Jackson founder of Minnie’s Food Pantry shared. “It is extremely devastating when you are trying to help the community and put meals on the table for thousands of families to come back to work and realize one of your trucks are gone, as we use it daily to pick up food from our grocery partners.”
The missing vehicle affects the ability of Minnie’s Food Pantry to pick up from partnering locations, ultimately impacting the amount of food the organization is able to rescue.
