RIVERSIDE (CBS) — The Second Harvest Food Bank has been in business for more than three decades, but the Riverside-based organization says an increasing demand for food is stretching them to the limit.

Seven years ago, they were feeding about 200,000 people in the Inland Empire every month. That number has doubled.

The non-profit organization has entered a contest to win a million dollars but they need the public’s help to win.

Walmart is awarding a $1 million prize to the community that gets the most votes on Facebook as part of their “Fight Hunger Together” campaign. Organizers of the Second Harvest Food Bank are asking the public to vote for the Inland Empire. (Walmart allows one vote per person every 24 hours.)
