SALT LAKE CITY — The FOX 13 virtual food drive for the Utah Food Bank got underway at 6 a.m. Thursday morning and ends at 6 p.m.
It's a chance to help the food bank which has seen a huge increase in the need for food during the coronavirus pandemic.
For every dollar donated today, FOX 13 will match it up to $12,000.
The money will help support neighborhood mobile distribution operations like one happening Thursday morning.
Trucks full of food arrive in a given area and volunteers unload it and get it to the people who need it.
Each mobile distribution lasts three to four hours, and it's a drive-thru operation and those who need food never have to get out of their vehicle.
If you'd like to donate food or money, you can do so at fox13now.com/donate.
