EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The Salvation Army has started its annual “War on Hunger,” in partnership with Schnuck.

The 20-year tradition helps feed those with food insecurity in Vanderburgh, Warrick, and Posey Counties.

The Salvation Army is seeking #PartnersForGood over the month of May to help.

The organization served more than 180,000 meals last year through its daily lunch, youth center, and food pantry programs.

Their special “War on Hunger” collection event was area Schnucks stores Saturday.

We spoke with one woman, who said helping to fight the war on hunger, is the right thing to do.

“It’s important because we’ve got a lot of starving people out here. Nobody deserves to starve, and if we can help, that’s what we ought to be doing. No ifs or maybes, we need to do that. One day, who knows, we might be hungry, and we’ll want someone to help us. No child or adult should go hungry,” said Joyce Thomas who donated to the campaign.

The goal is $75,000. For those who can’t afford to give a donation, officials say donating your time can be just as valuable.
