Arizona's Family Food Drive kicks off Million Meal Mission

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- It's that time of year -- time for the Arizona's Family Holiday Food Drive, and we're on a Million Meal Mission.

As Yetta Gibson explains, the food drive kicks off today, and the goal is to provide 1 million meals for families in need.

"The need is greater than ever before," said JoEllen Lynn of Fry's Food Stores, 3TV's partner for the food drive. "Our neighbors are hungry. One in seven Arizonans is hungry. ... We have seniors and children who need our support this year."

A donation of $2.50 will provide enough food for 17 meals. A donation amount of $10 will provide enough food for 70 meals.

You can donate at any Arizona Fry's location. Arizona's Family Food Drive runs through Dec. 31.
