SPOKANE, Wash.--KREM 2 News is a supporter of the national Outnumber Hunger campaign on Friday at 8:00 p.m. Spokane residents can make a contribution to the community with the click of a mouse.

General Mills Food is challenging those at home. The more people that log into a website and donate, the more meals they will donate to the food banks in the Spokane community.

There is $50,000 on the line for the City in the nation that can get the most support.

The goal is to keep families from going hungry every day in America.

KREM 2 News is supporting the kickoff by airing a concert from Vegas Friday night.

Employees at Second Harvest Food Bank in Spokane showed KREM 2 News how helping local families is as easy as buying your favorite cereal. There is a redemption code on the back of the box to enter online and it will give five meals to someone in need.

Spokane mother Rhonda Ferguson said she depends on the food bank by her house on North Foothills.

“It helps. It really helps my family of five,” said Ferguson.

Second Harvest employees said they hope they can one day say that the Spokane community Outnumbered Hunger.
