Summer months can be the time of year when needs like this can be forgotten or overlooked.

But hunger knows no season, and our buddies over at Denny Menholt University Honda are doing their part to make sure there's plenty of food on the shelves at the Missoula Food Bank. The goal is to raise one ton of non-perishable food donations by June 16. Once that goal is reached then Denny Menholt University Honda will kick in an additional $500 cash donation.

All food items can be dropped off at Denny Menholt on South Reserve in Missoula. And to sweeten the incentive, Big Dipper Ice Cream will be there on Friday, June 15, from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m., with free ice cream for anyone who makes a food donation. And of course, the dealership will be highlighting their outstanding affordable used inventory as well as their certified pre-owned Hondas during Team Honda Cares week.

But whether you're in the market for a vehicle or not, the most important thing is collecting those canned food donations. That's what it's all about and we wish them a "ton" of success.
