Hundreds turn out for food giveaway in Maine town

The Associated Press

BIDDEFORD, Maine — Hundreds of people attended a 10,000-pound food giveaway in Biddeford organized by a Christian ministry.

The food was donated to the mission by the Good Shepherd Food Bank. The food bank received a grant of food to use in communities, like Biddeford, that have experienced mill closings and layoffs.

WCSH-TV reports Thursday’s giveaway was supposed to happen on Tuesday, but the truck carrying all the food was sent to the wrong town sending people home empty handed.
