The 35th annual ABC11 Together Food Drive ran from November 20 - December 8. It's an important time when our viewers can join us to help restock the shelves at local food banks.
This year's goal was to provide 1.7 million meals for our neighbors in need. Thanks to your help, we exceeded that goal. A total of 1,864,738 meals were raised!
Last year these food banks distributed a record-breaking combined total of 152.6 million pounds of food due to the rise of people needing assistance during the pandemic. Many working families, children, and seniors still struggle to consistently get nutritious food on their table.
That's why community support is vital.
Here's how you can help:
- Pick A Box: Visit a Food Lion near you and purchase a "$5 Food Box". It will be donated to the drive.
- Click A Box: Give a monetary donation to either Food Bank linked above or on our ABC11 Facebook page.
