It's the launch of a Labor Day tradition with Weis Markets.

The grocery store chain is once again kicking off its annual "Fight Hunger" campaign across our area.

The project is now underway through the end of September. It's held now because September is "Hunger Action Month."

To date, Weis Markets has raised more than two million dollars for local food banks in our area.

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey visited the Weis store in Danville to show how you can get involved in the "Fight Hunger" campaign, the items you can donate, and the places that'll benefit.
