    NBC Bay Area and Telemundo 48 are teaming up with Safeway's "Feed the Need" food drive Saturday, kicking off a month-long effort to fight hunger in the Bay Area.

    This year’s food drive includes the collaboration of seven local food banks that serve more than 840,000 local residents each month. The "Feed the Need" food drive will take place at 170 Safeway locations throughout the Bay Area through Dec. 25.

    In addition to helping get the word out to the community, NBC Bay Area and Telemundo 48 will be enlisting support from hundreds of volunteers – including NBC Bay Area and Telemundo 48 anchors & reporters helping at their own neighborhood Safeway stores on Saturday, Nov. 17 to encourage shoppers to donate.

    On "Feed the Need" day and through Dec. 25, anyone can visit one of the participating Safeway stores to donate $1, $5 or $10 that will go toward a bag of food items that will be donated to the local food banks. At each store, shoppers can remove a flyer from the tear pads located at the register and make a donation. Each bag of food will contain pasta and sauce, canned vegetables, soup, and important protein items like peanut butter and canned chicken breast. Once collected, the food will be delivered to food banks for distribution to families in need.

    Last year, the food drive collected more than 360,000 bags across the Bay Area, nearly tripling the amount from the previous year and amounting to more than than 3.5 million pounds of food for those in need.

    NBC Bay Area and Telemundo 48 news teams will volunteer at their neighborhood Safeway stores on Saturday, Nov. 17. Stop by, say 'Hi!' and donate! Scheduled times and locations are listed below.
