KNOWLESVILLE — A delivery truck showed up this morning with 600 boxes of produce at the Orleans County 4-H Fairgrounds. It was a scheduling error.

The truck wasn’t supposed to be there until next Wednesday. The boxes were unloaded and have been up for grabs. There were about 190 boxes left at 11:45 a.m.

Each box has about 25 pounds of vegetables.

The food distribution scheduled for next Wednesday will still go on as planned, beginning at 10 a.m. until the food is gone. There will be 1,200 boxes of produce, and 450 boxes each of meats and dairy.

The fairgrounds also will host a food distribution on Aug. 26.
