You can purchase a rubber duck to raise money for Second Harvest of South Georgia.

The Valdosta food bank is selling the ducks for $5 each to raise money for programs to feed the hungry.

Just adopting one duck will feed a child a hot meal each night at Kids Cafe for one week and there's something in it for you too.

On April 30 10,000 ducks will be dumped into the Paradise River at Wild Adventures and race. The winning ducks get prizes and you could win a million dollars.

"It's a really simple and fun way for people to donate money to the food bank," said Shannon Taw Zapf with Second Harvest of South Georgia. "It's only $5 and $5 can go a long way it will buy a 55 pound bag of food for a family of five for a week."

Last year between Second Harvest of South Georgia's four warehouses, more than $14 milllion pounds of food was distributed. Click here for more information.
