WILMINGTON -- The tradition of a home cooked meal at Thanksgiving is still going strong, as is the tradition of providing for others during the holiday season.
Tuesday morning, students at Murrayville Elementary School handed over the canned foods they've been collecting. The 1,300 cans will go to the food bank. That's about 1,200 pounds of food.
Workers at the food bank say Murrayville Elementary's contribution will help provide a meal for more than a thousand people.
