Publix knows a thing or two about food, so the grocery store chain is marking Hunger Action Month in a big way.
Publix Super Market Charities donated $100,000 to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.
Publix also gave an additional $100,000 to some of the food bank's partner charities.
In addition to financial support, Publix team members also rolled up their sleeves to help sort pallets of potatoes.
A food bank spokesperson told ABC11 they haven't had sweet potatoes to hand out since Hurricane Florence ravaged the region.
In all, Publix Charities has donated more than $5 million to Feeding America member food banks, schools and other non-profits across the southeast. According to the USDA, one in eight people across America struggles with hunger everyday.
