FOX 10's Cory McCloskey visits St. Mary's Food Bank while they celebrate the 90th birthday of the man who started it all.
John van Hengel started St. Mary's Food Bank 46 years ago, establishing the first food bank to distribute food to the hungry. Van Hengel passed away in 2005.
In van Hengel's honor, all food bank employees built emergency food boxes to continue his legacy.
