Food Fight For Hunger

16 07 2008

From WILX’s website

News 10 isn’t just helping folks save money, we’re also looking out for folks who may not get enough to eat.

You can help in the “Food Fight For Hunger” by stopping by the Sam’s Club on Edgewood Boulevard in Lansing on Saturday from 7am to 5pm.
Folks are encouraged to drop off some much-needed items to stock the Mid-Michigan Food Bank.

Those items in high demand include cans of tuna, stew, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter, applesauce, rice dinners, elbow pasta and saltine crackers.
Monetary donations will also be accepted.
