VERONA, Va. (WHSV) -- A large amount of the food at the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank is donated from the community and during a time when donations are low, one area grocery store stepped up.
As part of a grand reopening Save A Lot donated more than 1,800 pounds of food on Friday.
Summer is always a time when the food bank's shelves become a little more bare. Those at the food bank are hoping their relationship with Save A Lot will turn into more donations in the future.
"It's the way that we are able to feed so many people. There are about 120,000 people a month relying on our services and there's absolutely no way we could help them without the support of the community," said Ruth Jones, with the food bank.
While more than 40 percent of the food the food bank receives comes from grocery stores and food processors, any donation can help.
