Tri-State Food Bank prepares for possibility of tough sequester cuts

Posted: Updated:

According to our media partner WIKY, the Tri-State Food Bank is about to take another major sequester hit.

Food bank director Mary Blair says the 5% reduction will be on top of a federal cutback connected with failure to approve the farm bill last year, but the food bank will be getting a big local boost.

The United Way's Spring Day of Caring will become a weeklong food drive, culminating May 11 with the annual Letter Carrier's Stamp Out Hunger Drive.
