Food bank donations lower than ever

Albany -- Contributions to Albany's food bank are down to the lowest level they've seen in years.

Shelves that would normally be filled with pallets of food are now bare.

They hand out more food this time of year, so less food in stock is normal. But the shortage is definitely more noticeable this year.

Workers at the Food Bank of Southwest Georgia say they need your help.

"We depend on the community and we depend on businesses. Their support maintains our facilities, maintains our equipment, maintains our trucking equipment. And just basically to run the business of the food bank which supports over 300 agencies in Southwest Georgia," said CEO, Brett Kirkland.

State grant money and the recent "Can-Do" food drive are helping the food bank stay afloat.
