Hunger is a serious issue that affects millions of people across the nation, including thousands in the Valley.

The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank shared several paper plates that visitors had left notes of thanks, concern and hope after receiving a meal.

As part of Hunger Action Month, WHSV-TV3, Clear Channel Radio and Martin's Grocery stores will collect non-perishable food items on Friday, Sept. 16.

You can help fight hunger in the Valley by donating items at Martin's to Stuff the Truck or by sending a text message to 85944 to make a $10 donation to the food bank.

Take a look at a few of these plates from those who came into the food bank and help the Valley collect 30,000 pounds of food for struggling families in the community on Friday. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
