Now in its 37th year, Food for the Hungry is an annual drive that collects food and revenue for the Knox County branches of The Salvation Army and Interchurch Social Services and other food initiatives throughout the county. These agencies in turn use the donations to help Knox County families with basic necessities throughout the year. 100% of all donations to Food for the Hungry stay in Knox County. The drive culminates in an eight hour live radio broadcast and internet stream. For years WNZR has partnered with Food for the Hungry to produce a live broadcast of the collection drive. More than 30 MVNU students are directly involved in the preparation and execution of the broadcast.
