WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - We are teaming up with United Supermarkets and the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank to host a canned food drive Friday.

Kara Nickens from the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank and Larry Joe with Market Street joined Brian Shrull in studio to talk about it.

The drive will run from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Market Street located at 4509 Kell West Boulevard.

The goal for the day is 15,000 lbs of canned food.

There will be a truck from the WFAFB outside of the store to take donations to.
