Friday was the final day of Hunger Action Month and the wrap-up of Three Square's food drive.

Three Square began its Fill the Plate food drive Sept. 8.

"This is the first year that we've done this and we'll continue this initiative," said Michelle Beck with Three Square food bank. "We have right now via our virtual food drive. People have donated $33,000."

For every dollar donated, Three Square can make three meals. Bank of America donated $25,000 to the campaign.

Boyd Gaming also presented the nonprofit with a $50,000 check toward its annual holiday match campaign.
