For the last eight years, WSIL TV has worked to fight hunger in our area. Viewers throughout the region have brought food to the plates and tables of those in need.
This year, we’ve teamed with the Salvation Army to give back to the communities we serve.
We’re hosting food drives outside select Kroger locations each Thursday in September and October. The items collected will go to local pantries who are working to help so many and sometimes struggle to keep their own shelves stocked.
Our final Sack Hunger food drive on the season will be 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Thursday, October 24 at the Mt. Vernon Kroger. A list of needed items and where they are located in the store can be found here.
You can also donate to the Salvation Army here.
