VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Thousands of apples were dropped off at the food bank in Valdosta Tuesday to take a healthy bite out of hunger.

Second Harvest got a donation 20,000 pounds of Washington State First Fruit apples.

Harvey's supermarket made its first donation about a month ago and set a goal to deliver 60,000 pounds of apples by Christmas.

They exceeded that goal.

The apples are also being distributed to the food bank facilities in Albany, Douglas, and Thomasville.

"The community support is what makes us," said Danny Dukes, the Thomasville branch director.  "People like Harvey's and the people coming into Harvey's shopping that are agreeing to go along with this it's just an amazing adventure for all of us."

The campaign is still underway.

You can buy apples and in return harvey's will donate apples.
