HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- A father and son worked together to fight hunger in the Valley as a bus packed with food arrived at the Harrisonburg Salvation Army on Tuesday morning, part of the sixth annual Brent Berry Food Drive.
The Rockingham County Sheriff's Office and Harrisonburg Fire Department helped unload the bus.
The Salvation Army Harrisonburg Corps said recent cuts to the food stamp program along with the colder winter have left their pantry supplies low.
Brent Berry, one of the organizers, is excited to see our community come together and make a difference.
"We need to feed the people here at home. I know I saw people eating out of dumpsters," said Berry.
"All this food is being matched through a special challenge match, from the Feinstein Foundation, where we get credit and we will get some cash in the summer for all this food," said David Sears, with the Salvation Army.
Last year, Brent and his father, Bucky, raised $45,000 worth of food, and this year they are aiming for $47,000.
The Salvation Army is still adding up the totals.
