MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - We partnered with the Mid-South Food Bank for our 12th annual WMC Action News 5 Holiday Food Drive.

We had crews at different locations throughout the Mid-South to encourage others to donate in person.

The Mid-South Food Bank serves 31 counties in our area and more than 400,000 people who are food insecure. Over the last decade-plus, the Holiday Food Drive has collected more than 2 million pounds of food.

The Mid-South Food Bank will now stretch every dollar donated to about three meals for those in need.

Shelby Dailey with CBIZ was able to donate over $12,000 Wednesday morning, which will amount to 40,000 meals for families in need.
