On Sunday, residents participated in the annual Load-A-Truck Sunday to fill the shelves of the food bank. The spring effort works to collect items on behalf of the food bank.
Food bank officials say they are expecting over 10,000 pounds of food to be brought in from 16 local churches. Officials also say the food they received Sunday will be gone within a month.
Load-A-Truck Sunday began in 1987, and the local Eau Claire chapter hasn't missed a year since then.
