THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -  A generous donation of chicken is helping fight hunger in South Georgia.

Perdue Farms donated 28,000 pounds of poultry as a part of their commitment to donate two million pounds every year to Feeding America Food Banks like Second Harvest.

Georgia ranks number four in the nation in childhood hunger, and most at-risk families cannot afford food with higher nutritional values.

Eliza McCall, Chief Marketing Officer of Second Harvest of South Georgia, said, “It allows us to make sure that people are not just filling bellies, but that they're also nourished so they can go on to thrive and not just survive.”

The food bank currently has 7,800 pounds left.
