There's nothing worse than being hungry. I know some good people who make too much money to be on food stamps but don't have enough for rent, electricity AND food. These kinds of programs are great for people in that kind of a bind. But Fox 33 is reporting on a local food bank  that's needs a hand.

Sharee Stevens has been the president of the food bank since 2000. She says she's never seen the shelves this empty. "It's frustrating because you can't give them everything they need because we're out of some things." That includes fresh meat, milk and mac-and-cheese.

The pantry is operated in part by the East Texas Food Bank. It depends entirely on donations, and in the summer months, Stevens says, there are fewer coming in. That's a problem though, since summertime is when more children are home during the day--and when more food is needed.

Help out if you can!
