CROOKSTON, MN (WDAZ-TV) - The number of people in need of food is increasing and many are turning to North Country Food Bank in Crookston.

March has been the busiest month since the shelf opened in October.

Over the past few years, the amount of food brought to Grand Forks and East Grand Forks for people in need has increased 63 percent.

Directors say there are several reasons for the increase.

"Difficulties with the economy have lasted longer, so people don't have as many resources as they used to have and all these things pile up over time," Susie Novak said.

If you would like to make a donation or learn more, you can log onto NorthCountryFoodBank.org.
