The Ministerial Outreach Food Bank in Havelock has received a helping hand that will allow them to feed families and people in need for months to come.

The Havelock food bank received well over 17-hundred pounds of food from the federal employee food drive. This donation is part of a national campaign that ends on the last week of August. The national campaign hopes to raise over 2-million pounds of food all across the country.

Food Bank Director, Carolyn Mewborn, told WITN she expects to receive more than four to five thousand pounds of food by the end of this month due to the efforts of the campaign.
