Dump Hunger Campaign Begins Monday


By Aimee Burnett

Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV) Albertsons and Wells Fargo are teaming up with Western States Equipment to end hunger in the Magic Valley.

The Dump Hunger campaign begins tomorrow in southern Idaho.

Dump trucks will be placed at Albertsons grocery stores in Twin falls, Hailey and Burley.

All non–perishable foods are welcome and if you have frozen food bring that down as well, it won't go to waste.

"We want to fill five trucks is our goal. We nearly filled two last year and we’re looking to improve on that to help as many people as we can," said Gordy Gates, Western States Equipment.

The timing of Dump Hunger is critical to food banks as January and February are the most challenging months for food donations.

The campaign runs through February 8th.

Those of you planning on attending this year's Agri–Action can bring two cans of food per person and get in for free.
