LENEXA, Kan. (AP) — Lenexa police are investigating the theft of thousands of meals intended for homeless veterans.

KMBC reports a trailer containing meals packed by bank employees last week was stolen last week. The meals were intended for Friends In Service of Heroes, a veteran service organization.

The trailer carried 12,100 meal packets, with each packet making eight meals — for a total of nearly 97,000 meals. The food was going to be delivered to the Kansas City VA Medical Center Nov. 21.
