EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - 14 News teamed up again with the Salvation Army to host the annual War on Hunger drive outside area Schnucks locations last week.

The Salvation Army tells us they surpassed their goal of $50,000 and are on our way to meet the challenge goal of $60,000.

This money will help The Salvation Army stock the shelves of their food pantry and fund the soup kitchen, which is especially important after a year like we’ve had.

In 2020, The Salvation Army says they served over 580,000 meals in the Evansville region. Over 12,000 boxes of food were packed up for families during five different drives through food pantry events..
