Can Food Banks Meet the Need of the Community?


On the eve of Thanksgiving, how are food banks handling the need of the community trying to serve those less fortunate?

According to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina they are not experiencing a food shortage, but do have less food on the shelves then in years past. Officials think that's largely due to Hurricane Katrina relief. Some agencies like local churches distributing the food say they haven't noticed a food shortage, and many are working overtime Wednesday to make sure folks have a happy Thanksgiving.

The Greenville Food Bank says they haven't noticed a shortage either and have even had turkeys to give away.
