Thousands of pounds of food collected for Second Harvest

Matthew Frahm Matthew Frahm

Second Harvest Food Bank had, as of Monday, several thousand more pounds of food to put on its shelves thanks to generous Wild Adventures park goers.

All weekend long, the park had been offering buy one get one free park admission coupons to guests who brought a canned food item to donate when they came to the park.

It was part of Southeastern Federal Credit Union's annual "Fill A Truck For Hunger" campaign, which runs through the end of September.

"I just wanted to come out, it's a great cause. Labor Day weekend, wanted to spend time at Wild Adventures and I figured I might as well bring a canned good," said Matthew Frahm, as he stood in line waiting to donate his canned food item Monday morning.

As of Monday afternoon, forklifts were scheduled to be used Tuesday to load the food onto a mobile food pantry truck and then the truck will deliver the food to Second Harvest's warehouse in Valdosta.
