Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- School is almost out for most students around the Northland area, and with that comes the need for more food donations.

The Duluth Superior Transport Association and Cub Foods have teamed up with the Northern Harvest Food Bank to help with the upcoming demand.

Throughout this weekend a 53-foot-long semi is parked in the Cub Foods parking lot off Central Entrance.

The goal is to fill the entire truck with food donations from to community to help with the upcoming demand for food as students enter the summer break.

"I think it's very important. A lot of kids around here, they just don't have food right now this time of year. We've met some people that actually were on programs when they were kids, and they talked to us about it, and it's been just great to hear about," said Jay Baker, president of DSTA.

If you would like to donate, the semi will be at Cub Foods on Central Entrance all day Sunday as well.
