Albany -- The Food Bank of Southwest Georgia says it has certainly seen the impact of hard economic times with a greater number of people in need of it's services.

While February is one the best donation months, the food bank says it could always use more, especially canned goods. One way you can help is by showing up to Sam's Club or Wal-Mart on Easter weekend where the Food bank will be accepting donations.

 "We'll actually have a food bank truck set up at the Wal-Mart as well as SAM's. You can take your canned goods there or you can go to Wal-Mart or SAM's and buy those canned and donate them to us. All the proceeds will go to the food bank," said Food Bank of Southwest Georgia Executive Director Tony Hall

The food bank, which serves 20 counties in the Southwest Georgia, is also in need of bottled water throughout the severe weather months.
