Food banks need something other than food: Plastic bags

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Action News learned food banks here in Yakima are doing pretty well for this time of year. However, there are ways you can help besides giving food.

OIC says it's running out of room in refrigerators to hold perishables.

It also needs plastic grocery bags to hold vegetables given away. Right now, people are being asked to bring plastic or re-usable bags.

If you have a refrigerator or bags to donate, you can drop them off at the food bank off Fruitvale Boulevard.
