As the holidays approach, food banks and pantries like Forgotten Harvest are in need of goods

Every donation helps those who don’t know where their next meal might come from.

Trucks are loaded up every morning at Forgotten Harvest, ready to distribute food to people in need across the area. Volunteers then help those in need, making sure people don’t go hungry.

Cars line up at Forgotten Harvest’s sites every week, and windshields are marked with how many people are in the household so they know how much food to give.

One truck has enough food on it to feed 500 households.

“I love it. They give you so much to eat and I can share it with someone and my neighbors also,” one person told us.
