Tis' the season to share a warm meal with family and friends. But some residents in the community may go without food if the shelves aren't filled at America's Second Harvest.
Second Harvest provides 4,000 meals to children in need every day through the Kids Cafe program. On Thanksgiving Eve, they will be serving 500 meals to children who would otherwise go without. It's through donations and drives that the food bank is able to help fight hunger. But the food banks supplies are running low.
"Anything people give is greatly appreciated," said Second Harvest Executive Director Mary Jane Crouch. "Just as you are sitting down to eat your Thanksgiving dinner, remember there are those not having a Thanksgiving dinner. Clean out your pantry pack an extra bag of groceriess and drop it by the food bank."
The food bank needs donations of non-perishable foods and accepts all food items that are labeled and unopened.
