Van Son says a survey taken two years ago showed about 13,000 residents of Nevada County needing supplemental food to survive. Van Son says since then the numbers have gone up.

Van Son  says Interfaith Food Ministries gave out 92 thousand bags of groceries last year and they are on track to break that record this year. The Food Bank will be collecting turkeys this year just like last year, in the Save Mart Parking lot on Tuesday, November 17th, and giving them to Interfaith Food Ministries for distribution. Van Son says all of the local grocery stores will also be having ways for shoppers to make donations for holiday meals. People can also make a monetary donation on the IFM website, www.interfaithfoodministry.org

Thanksgiving is just one month away from today, on November 26th.
