Food drive underway to help thousands

-food-bank-vo

ROCHESTER, Minn. – With 100,000 people dealing with hunger in our area, the Channel One Regional Food Bank is turning to students to give them a hand.

Starting this week and running until the middle of November, schools across southern Minnesota will be collecting food items for Channel One. We are told the goal is to collect 50,000 pounds of food — and of course there will be some contests between the schools. Those with the food shelf tell us this is very important not only for them but for the students as well to know this is a serious issue in our area.
