FORT WAYNE, Ind. (NBC33) - Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller in Fort Wayne today to announce the beginning of the month-long "March Against Hunger" food drive.

This is the annual challenge issued by the Attorney General's office in conjunction with the Indiana State Bar Association as a friendly competition between law firms to donate goods as well as raise money for local food banks.

This is the sixth year for the food drive competition which organizers say mean a lot to the food banks it benefits.

"It's really cool that he wants to partner with us annually and he wants to make hunger awareness a full month-long food drive," says Sara Koerner with the Community Harvest Food Bank. "Most food drives may last two or three weeks, and this lasts an entire month. And he's doing it annually in support of hunger awareness."

The Community Harvest Food Bank serves over 13 million pounds of food annually to 90,000 people throughout their nine county service area.
