The Montana Food Bank Network has a new mobile food pantry truck that will allow it to distribute food to more rural areas of the state.

Montana Food Bank Network CEO Gayle Gifford says the refrigerated truck will allow delivery of food to people living in areas 50 miles or farther from a grocery store.

Gifford estimates the organization will be able to distribute food to another 100 to 150 people a month.

Each box delivered on the truck will contain 50 pounds of shelf-stable foods along with fresh fruits and vegetables. The food is enough to last a family of four about five days.

The Montana Food Bank Network distributed almost 8 million pounds of food across Montana last year.
