A local charity is launching a public campaign to feed the hungry.

Terre Haute Catholic Charities hosted Harvest for Hope on Tuesday night. At the event, they announced their "Closing the Meal Gap" campaign to purchase a new facility for more food storage.

Up until now, it's been a silent campaign, but now Catholic Charities is launching a public phase.

Officials also say they're on track to exceed 3 million lbs. of food in a 12 month cycle. However, while that sounds like a lot, there are still people in need.

Officials say making sure people don't go hungry, should be a priority of the community.

"Eating right: it certainly has a big influence on our outlook, it has a huge influence on our health and our ability to just maintain a positive outlook in life. So, all of these things as a community we can do. We just need to do it," says John Etling with Terre Haute Catholic Charities.

The event was also held to thank the donors who have made contributions so far. The food at the dinner was also locally grown.

For information on how you can make a donation, contact Terre Haute Catholic Charities at (812) 232-1447.
