Rising food prices hurt the Tri-Cities food bank

TRI-CITIES, Wash.  --  Rising food prices means the Tri-Cities food bank is having a harder time feeding people in need.

Food prices have spiked five percent this year.

It's led to a drop in donations for the food bank, meaning employees have to buy food instead.

As a result, the food bank has gone over-budget for three straight months.

Workers hope prices will start to even out by the summer.

As always, the food bank is welcoming donations from the community.
