In an effort to come up with the best number of Valley families who go hungry each day, the Rio Grande Valley Food Bank conducted a study.
The Food Bank gathered the most recent yearly numbers, but Executive Director for the agency says there has been a large increase in the need for food in the last two years. There has also been a change in the people who need it the help. The study discovered more middle class families are needing help since many are unemployed.
