The Food For The Hungry broadcast is coming up this Friday! Today Lexie & Alyssa share all about it:

Food for the Hungry is the annual collection of food and funds to benefit Interchurch Social Services, The Salvation Army and other food assistance organizations of Knox County. Donations help stock pantry shelves and give financial assistance to support Knox County’s citizens in need!

The top ten food items needed are:

canned meat (chicken, tuna), beef stew/hearty soups, canned pasta, boxed dinners (Hamburger Helper), peanut butter, spaghetti/spaghetti sauce, cereal (hot and cold), baked beans/kidney/chili beans, noodles/instant rice/potatoes, canned fruits and vegetables. Cans that can be opened without a can opener (pop top) are best!
