GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - 400 families in Grand Forks will receive food and toiletry donations on Wednesday.

This is the first year Feed the Children will be held as a one day event in Grand Forks. The organization has helped more than 365,000 families across the country since it began in 2009.

Organizers had a little help preparing from some volunteers from the Grand Forks Air Force Base.

Feed the Children will deliver a semi full of food and essentials to the Salvation Army Wednesday morning.

"We're going to have 800 total boxes. 400 is going to be stuffed with 25 pounds of food and then 400 will be stuffed with 10 pounds of personal care items," Lindy Beauchamp with the Salvation Army said.

Volunteers are needed all day Wednesday. For more information, contact the Salvation Army at 701-775-2597.
