The food bank’s Farm Wagon program, which delivers food to sites around northeast Indiana, was canceled Wednesday because of the cold weather. Claudia Johnson, director of communications, said most people who line up for the Farm Wagon walk from their homes, and it’s too dangerous for them to wait in long lines in such cold. According to the food bank’s website, Farm Wagon deliveries are canceled for the day when the temperature at 7:30 a.m. in Fort Wayne is 10 degrees or less.
