The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri is in its 40th year. Regional Coordinator Darren White gives an example of how much the need for the Food Bank has grown since year one.

White says the Food Bank was able to help in another way, in 1993.

On KWIXland This Morning, Darren White said the Buddy Pack program started in 2005 providing weekend food for 80 students. There are now seven thousand students receiving buddy packs in their 32-county region.
