FORT MYERS, Fla.- The first of thirty buses rolls into Harry Chapin Food Bank filled to the top with something volunteers say is running scarce.
"Last year we had a period that was really scary, a few weeks I was cancelled because there wasn't food to pack," said volunteer Sherry Pate.
The food bank feeds 30,000 people every month. That's more than double from a year ago. Even though Harry Chapin Food Bank doles out 50 percent more food, it's still not meeting the need.
Last year the drive brought in 50,000 pounds of food. Already it looks like the record could be broken.
