    Most of us love to eat, and if we can help out a worthwhile charity at the same time it's icing on the cake, or ketchup on the burger, to use a phrase more befitting of this week's Military Matters.More >>
    The Four Winds Restaurant in Cusseta is known for the world-famous Ranger Burger, and it sold a bunch of them recently… enough to raise $1,500 for charity.

    The promotion, called Grubbin to Give, put 50 percent of the day's proceeds in the coffers of the Warrior Outreach Program.

EDITORIAL: WTVM is teaming up with Feeding the Valley Food Bank to collect food for the hungry in our community.

Starting Saturday, November 19 through November 23 viewers will be able to drop off non-perishable food at participating Winn Dixie locations, Country's BBQ in Columbus and at the WTVM studios.

Country's and McDonalds are our sponsors this year and we appreciate their support. All food collected will benefit the second Harvest Food Bank, a United Way partner.

The mission of feeding the valley is to gather food to feed the hungry. The values that Feeding the Valley strives to incorporate into its mission are compassion, good stewardship, dedication, urgency and inclusiveness.

The needs of feeding the valley are always canned meat, canned fruits and vegetables, cereals, peanut butter and jelly and soups.

Feeding the valley needs our help year-round so let's start a new habit during this holiday season.

Go to your pantry or grocery store and bring at least one grocery bag full of food items to Winn-Dixie, country's or WTVM before November 23 so more people than ever will not go hungry during the holidays.
