(WBIR) Second Harvest Food Bank got a big boost on Wednesday to help stock their warehouse.

Kroger delivered more than $50,000 worth of food as part of its Can Hunger Campaign. The big donation drove up in three tractor trailers.

That food will help provide tens of thousands of meals for those in need in the East Tennessee community.

The money was donated by customers who shopped at Kroger during the holiday season.

"This is the best time of year for can hunger food to arrive because we always get holiday support, but in the middle of January and February things really drop and it's just fantastic to have $56,000 worth of food that the community raised, and the kind of food we really need. A nutritious product that our agencies and our partners love," said Elaine Streno with Second Harvest Food Bank.

Some of the donated food included canned vegetables, spaghetti, cereal, and canned fruit.
