David Skoke is on a mission to feed the hungry in Atlanta.
The part-time actor drives around the city in a brightly painted minivan twice a week picking up extra unsold produce from four Whole Foods Market locations. "Whole Foods pulls food from the shelves three days before its expiration date, so it still has three good days left and probably more," he said.
Skoke said he averages about three tons of food per month. His delivers the fresh fruits and vegetables to five area soup kitchens, homeless shelters and food pantries. On a recent Wednesday he delivered a shipment to Saint Patrick's Episcopal Church in Dunwoody, which runs a Free Food Store and a café for the needy.
