TOPEKA, Kansas (WIBW) -- Organizers of a very big event say pairing trucks with donating food was a win for everyon.

The downtown Touch A Truck event netted Harvesters literally almost a ton of food - 992 pounds total.

It brought dozens of construction and public utilty works equipment to downtown Topeka so kids could learn more about safety and how they work. Sixteen tons of sand was piled into the street for kids to play on, as well as merchants and food.

The kids were smiling, and so will the thousands of people in the Topeka area that benefit from Harvesters food donations each day.
