Wednesday was another successful day and night for our Summer Harvest for Kids campaign.

KSTP has teamed up with local leaders in hunger relief.

We're working together to make sure kids in need get healthy meals this summer.

About a dozen Girl Scouts from the Plymouth area were packing food for kids at the Second Harvest Heartland warehouse in Golden Valley; $20 buys enough food to feed two kids lunch for two weeks. As a special incentive "By the Yard" matched donations earlier in the day.

Those who have donated so far have helped us raise nearly $8,500 Wednesday.

It's not too late to donate. Click here for details.
