Thanksgiving is about a week away and one food bank says it is drastically low on turkeys and hams.
The Food Bank of Central and Eastern Carolina says it only has seven turkeys and hams to go around. That's particularly bad because more and more people are seeking public assistance to get by these days.
The food bank says keeping the shelves stocked is a challenge. They say organizations such as theirs have seen a 60 percent increase in requests.
The Salvation Army says 83 percent of the people who signed up for help with them are first timers.
The Food Bank is located at 497 West Ninth Street, Greenville. Their phone number if 252-752-4996.
