BUFFALO, N.Y. - An Army veteran from Franklinville and his wife got quite the surprise Saturday night at the Taste of Buffalo.

Alex and Josey Thompson went up on stage during one of the concerts, and they were awarded $5,000 in free groceries thanks to Tops and Eckrich Meats.

The couple says the prize will go a long way, especially because they have three "hungry-all-the-time kids."

Josey said she was blown away by the gift and started shaking and crying when they accepted it.
