Fighting hunger over the holidays, one box at a time

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

One box at a time, FOX 13, Sweetbay and Feeding America Tampa Bay are teaming up for the Box Out Hunger Campaign.

Each $10 box purchased is donated to a needy family in the area. Last year, about 18,000 boxes were purchased. This year, we're hoping for more than that.

Inside each box are non-perishable items: Green beans, cereal, pasta, pasta sauce, mac and cheese, rice, chicken noodle soup, oatmeal and canned chicken breast.

Typically, a box feeds a family of four for about three days over the holidays.

You can purchase a box at any Sweetbay Super Market.
