Turkey Tuesday: KRCG 13, Hy-Vee partner to feed needy families

KRCG-13, Hy-Vee partner for Turkey Tuesday to raise money for families in need ahead of Thanksgiving.

It's become a mid-Missouri tradition this time of year. KRCG 13 and Hy-Vee are once again partnering to help feed needy families served by the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri.

This year, KRCG 13 staff will be at the Rock Bridge Hy-Vee in Columbia and the Jefferson City Hy-Vee all day Tuesday, Nov. 14 encouraging people to donate at the cash register. All donations will help provide turkeys for families in need and will be doubled - turkey for turkey up to $5,000 by Feeding Missouri.

"Think of your holiday and how integral of a role the turkey plays," said food bank executive director, Lindsay Lopez. "Some people can't afford that on their own and they need our help to make their Thanksgiving special."

Guests at both stores need to simply let the cashier know they'd like to donate and they'll scan a bar code at the register.

Donations at both Hy-Vee stories run through 6:30 p.m.
