WATERLOO (KWWL) The USDA reports more than 36 million Americans live in "food-insecure" households - meaning they don't have consistent access to good food.

During September, the Northeast Iowa Food Bank in Waterloo is teaming up with Feeding America for "Hunger Action Month." It's a nationwide effort to get people involved with ending hunger in America.

For every one dollar you donate, the Northeast Iowa Food Bank says it can provide almost $12 worth of food to someone.

Besides a monetary donation, you can also drop items off at the food bank's 11th street location in Waterloo.
