Christ’s Table food pantry benefits from 40,000 lb. Del Monte tomato-product spill near Zanesville, Ohio:
- Traffic had to be rerouted via U.S. 40 while workers spent three hours clearing the mess. Ten Falls Township firefighters helped in the cleanup, loading the debris into dump trucks and using their hoses to flush away the sauce and juice.
State troopers said the accident occurred when a car drifted into the left lane and struck the semi. Neither driver was hurt.
….About 1,500 pounds of mixed vegetables, ketchup and spaghetti sauce salvaged from the wreckage were delivered to Christ’s Table.
“It saves us a lot. It’s a bunch of stuff we didn’t have to spend money to buy,” said John Willhelm, kitchen supervisor at Christ’s Table, which serves lunch to about 300 people daily and provides food to needy families. [AP]
And they say there aren’t any modern miracles. How many angels can dance on a can of tomato sauce?
