At a time when relief matters in any form, Duluth-area labor unions are conducting a free-food giveaway open to everyone Thursday at 11:30 a.m. at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center.

Attendees will receive a 30-pound box of food. The event, dubbed "Truckload of Food," runs as long as supplies last.

A drive-through pickup loop will be arranged in the DECC parking lot, at 350 Harbor Dr., to distribute the food.

The event is being presented by the Duluth Building and Construction Trades Council, Northeast Area Labor Council, and UFCW Local 1189 in partnership with the Saint Paul Regional Labor Federation, a flyer for the event said.
