An effort is underway to make sure everyone in Topeka has enough to eat.
Project Topeka kicked off Friday. This is the 24th year of the community food drive. People are asked to give non-perishable food items to stock the shelves at local food pantries.
Many businesses collect items. People also can drop off donations at any Topeka or Shawnee County fire station.
Project Topeka hopes to bring in 199 tons of food in the month-long campaign.
