RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The city of Racine partnered with Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin for a mobile food drive Tuesday, Oct. 12.
It was held Tuesday afternoon at the Dr. John Bryant Community Center.
More than 200 families stopped by the pantry for a healthy pre-packaged meal.
Lesia Hill-Driver is director of the community center. She says there's a growing need to address hunger in Southeast Wisconsin.
"We're located very close to our shelter here in Racine," Hill-Driver said. "So I see hunger on a daily basis. We feed children here after school. There's just a great need, people need food."
According to Feeding America, one in seven people in eastern Wisconsin is facing hunger.
The groups say they're always looking for volunteers.
