It took less than a half-hour for 75 families to pick up boxes of fresh produce at the Bowman County Fairgrounds June 25.
The distribution had cars lined up around the edge of the parking lot and down the south side of the frontage road parallel to Highway 12. There were dozens of cars and SUVs lined up long before the food arrived, according to some of the volunteers.
It was the members of the Amidon Food Pantry again helping out Bowman and several other communities in southwestern North Dakota to get fresh foods and produce to families in need.
The food delivery will return to Bowman July 9, according to Linda Narum, the director of the pantry.
The flatbed trailer arrived with more than 100 boxes of produce, which included bags of potatoes, celery, cucumbers, apples and other fresh items, Narum explained.
The produce boxes were part of the Farm to Family program.
