Mayor Winnecke is declaring this weekend Tri-State Food Bank weekend.
Saturday, the food bank celebrated their 30th anniversary with ice cream, games and music.
The organization says each year, they distribute over 7 million pounds of food to 33 counties. The food bank tells us, your support and donations can help put an end to hunger.
"Elderly people who are on a fixed income, many times they are foregoing some of their prescriptions just so they can eat. And if we can provide that food to them, they can have a better quality of life. If we can get that nutrition to the kids, they can grow up, they can be a productive part of society," said Executive Director of the Tri-State Food Bank Mary Blair.
Tri-State Food Bank says they help over 100,000 people each month.
