FORT MYERS, Fla. - When you look around the Harry Chapin Food Bank - you see lots of food. But its not nearly enough to supply those in need this year. A struggling economy means many more people are going to be looking for a helping hand this Thanksgiving.

The only problem is the food bank is at a deficit of its own. While they have many of the side items of a good Thanksgiving dinner, they are desperately in need of turkeys.They have about 750 and they need more than 5,000.

A big difference - the folks at Harry Chapin are hoping public donations will help fill the freezers.
