Sack Hunger - WSIL-TV 3 Southern Illinois

Sack Hunger

For the last eight years, WSIL TV has worked to fight hunger in our area. Viewers throughout the region have brought food to the plates and tables of those in need. 

This year, we've teamed with the Salvation Army to give back to the communities we serve.

We're hosting food drives outside select Kroger locations each Thursday in September and October. The items collected will go to local pantries who are working to help so many and sometimes struggle to keep their own shelves stocked. 

This week's Sack Hunger food drive will be 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. Thursday, September 26 at the Carbondale Kroger. A list of needed items and where they are located in the store can be found here
