Valdosta - The holiday season is here and Second Harvest Food Bank in Valdosta is doing its part to help.

They packaged three hundred holiday boxes that they'll give to senior citizens.

The boxes contain canned foods, juices and holiday favorites.

Food bank workers say with the prices of gas, food and medicine on the rise, many people on fixed incomes need more help.  "They have so many costs like medications, rent, utilities and everything. And utility prices are going up with the weather changes so we like to do this to supplement their incomes," says Shannon Zapf, Development Director at the food bank.

The boxes can be picked up at the food bank starting Monday at 8:00 AM.

They'll offer fruits, vegetables and bread to go with the boxes.
