COLQUITT COUNTY, Ga. — A food bank in Colquitt County needs your help.

As of the last few weeks, the food bank is in dire need of donations. Laura Keith, Executive Director of Colquitt County Food Bank, says the number of people needing food has increased and that is putting a strain on the food bank.

"Last year at this time our average number of orders per day were about 20, and that would be a busy day," said Keith. "Now we are up to about 40 to 45 orders a day."

Keith says the food bank is accepting any donations, but monetary donations are preferred. To find out how you can donate, click here.
