Valdosta - Buying a little rubber duck could end hunger in South Georgia.

The South Harvest Food Bank is Valdosta kicked off it's Duck Derby Fundraiser Thursday.

The community can now adopt their own rubber ducks at $5.00 each.

In March, those ducks will be raced down Paradise River at Wild Adventures.

The proceeds will all go back to the food bank.

The owner of the winning duck will walk away with this brand new truck from Bosch GMC.

"Its a great way to give back to the community. Hunger is something a lot of us take for granted but its definitely a need out there and they've done a lot to solve that problem in the community," says Bart Bosch, owner of Bosch GMC.

That race will take place March 27 at Wild Adventures.
