Lt. Gross asked the young audience if they knew where the food would go, one child spoke up loud and proud, “to the homeless!” Lt. Gross affirmed the boy’s answer and explained the food will be used for people without a home, in the soup kitchens that serve meals every week, and could be used for emergency disasters.
