Feeding DC: Little Blue Truck CAN Get it Done

Horn went beep
Engine purred
Friendliest sounds
you ever heard.

Little Blue Truck came down the street
Beep! Beep! Beep!
What do you need?

COVID-19 has made it hard
To access nutritious food both near and far.
One in ten people is in need
Of a helping hand and a generous deed

Little Blue Truck is here in DC
To help the growing hunger in the city.
With the Capital Area Food Bank in his sight
He will drive around both day and night.

To help a friend out one by one
He won’t stop until he gets the job done.
And along the way, spread his message clear
For everyone far and wide to hear

If we all work together and do our part
It might be small, but it can be a start
For those in need, a lot depends
on a helping CAN from a few good friends
