FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – A local charitable organization is doing its part to help those in need.

The Community Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Indiana packed a semi-truck full of snacks and ready-to-eat meals, and delivered them to tornado victims in Oklahoma.

Community Harvest had been collecting items all week, and ended up with more than 21,000 pounds of food.

The food bank will continue to collect food donations, but they say cash is preferred. In fact, they've already collected more than $1,800 for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.
