The company says its ‘Healthy You Mobile’ and semi-trailers will be in the area to provide snacks and beverages as it navigates neighborhoods to help with recovery efforts.

The grocery chain is also partnering with HACAP for a contactless drive-thru giveaway. The giveaway is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday at the Veterans Memorial Stadium in Cedar Rapids.
