Waterloo (KWWL) - A yearly fundraiser has tripled previous year's dollars.

The Northeast Iowa Food bank's Combat Hunger event collected more than $14,000 in donations from generous grocery shoppers. The weekend event took place at area hy-vee and fareway stores. Shoppers were given a flyer and encouraged to add either one or three dollars to their total grocery bill.

In total, 534 pounds of food were donated during combat hunger.
