MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Minneapolis food pantry is scrambling to feed nearly 200 families after more than 1,500 pounds of donations were stolen.

Just days before its annual giveaway, police say a person who volunteered to transport the food from a staging area to the Camden Promise Food Shelf at Gethsemane Lutheran Church drove away with the donations.

Pastor Jeff Nehrbass tells KSTP-TV it's difficult to understand "how a person can go from helping to taking.''

Police say no arrests have been made.
