Abingdon, VA -

     Public officials rolled up their sleeves in the fight against hunger in Southwest Virginia.  They were in Abingdon to volunteer at "Feeding America Southwest Virginia".

     The idea is to create a movement throughout the region that has a lasting impact on the efforts to feed more people than ever before.  They hope by seeing people helping it will also encourage others to lend a hand.

     Last year the food bank helped 122,000 people each month in 26 different counties throughout Southwest Virginia.
