The push to fight hunger in Arkansas gains plenty of helpful hands.
Thursday, children from William Jefferson Clinton Elementary school were at the State Capitol loading up Arkansas food bank vans with the food they raised to fight hunger.
The school has gathered over 40 thousand pieces of non perishable food over the 17 years they have participated in the Post Office's Stamp Out Hunger program.
Taking on the project was a real eye-opener for the children.
"It came as a shock to me to learn that according to the Feeding America report, close to one in every four children in our state have little or no access to food and are going hungry," said Hunter Belin, Clinton Elementary Student Council President
Campbell soup and the AARP also announced they're joining forces with the National Association of letter carriers to help with the 20th Anniversary of Stamp Out Hunger this Saturday.
