Salem High School hosted the distribution but will now have to postpone

SALEM, Ohio (WKBN) – A food distribution planned for noon Sunday in Salem will have to be rescheduled.

Transportation troubles derailed the food distribution.

With around 500 cars waiting in line to receive groceries, the truck carrying the food broke down en route in Medina, Ohio. It was carrying about twelve-hundred boxes of food.

“As they were pulling the trailer out, they had a major catastrophe. From what he explained to me, basically all the tires gave out,” said Sean Kirkland, superintendent of Salem City Schools.

Salem High School hosted the distribution but will now have to postpone.

Staff members say they will update the community once they figure out when to host the make-up food distribution.
