Metrodome Food Donated To Food Shelf

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The collapse of the Metrodome roof wasn’t bad for everyone.

Aramark, the Minnesota Vikings’ food preparer, is donating all the food prepared for the postponed game between the New York Giants and Vikings to a food shelf.

The game was originally scheduled for Sunday afternoon. But it was moved to Monday night in Detroit after a snowstorm caved in the roof Sunday morning.

Aramark general manager Corey Hedrick called it “an easy decision” to give all the prepared food to Minneapolis-based Twin Cities Second Harvest Heartland.
