FARGO — The annual Packathon event took place at Great Plains Food Bank Friday, Sept. 17, as teams of volunteers showed up to help pack boxes of food for those in need.

The event comes on National Hunger Action Day, a nationwide event to call for an end to hunger.

"It's really important to make sure that everyone in our community has those basic needs taken care of, and we can help those who need us," Great Plains Food Bank volunteer Amber Dekrey said.

The food bank encourages people to go to their website to look for future opportunities to help.
