5:53 am
bank distributed 33 million pounds of food but it still wasn't enough to meet the growing demand. this year they are one step closer to making sure everyone in the dmv who needs food is well fed. so clearly they have got the space but now they need your help. they need food to fill all the shelves and volunteers to sort through it. 9news now. if you would like to volunteer or donate food to stock the shelves, we'll show you how. just go to our website at research suggests 15% of us never use these things after we get them is it prescriptions, exercise equipment or barbecue grills? >> more people are feeling like our facebook friends ben. jean wrote my treadmill is an awesome clothes hanger drier. that said i'm going to say
