HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — News 19 and several community partners teamed up for the ‘Fill the Food Bank’ Blitz Day and it was a huge success! But, the drive isn’t over yet.

Fill the Food Bank benefits the Food Bank of North Alabama which serves communities all across North Alabama.

Even though Blitz Day was on August 18, the food drive continues until August 26.

Thanks to your donations, we are able to create OVER 15,000 MEALS for the community! We can’t thank everyone enough. If you missed us, you can still donate food items and monetary donations can be made in-store and online.
