Caring for the poor and hungry is a natural impulse for many people around the holidays. Food banks tend to be busy in December, moving product in and out. Here in mid-Michigan, the Greater Lansing Food Bank is confronting an issue facing many others across the country: more demand, yet fewer donations. Current State's Kevin Lavery speaks with executive director Joe Wald.
