SARASOTA- We think of food banks, and what comes to mind? Canned goods and non-perishables.

The All Faiths Food Bank is bringing something.  On Monday, the organization delivered the custom-made mobile farm market named "Sprout." The truck will deliver fresh produce to people in need throughout Sarasota County.

The truck has places to store food, keep it refrigerated, and put it on display.  "Sprout" will deliver 64,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables next year.  With the food, All Faiths will offer recipes that show people how to make nutritious meals.
