screen, that's the approach we've taken for our food pantry. we give every household a set number of virtual dollars and they select their food off a touch screen and we've allocated their dollars by the my plate food group so they have a certain amount of fruit points, a certain amount of vegetable, protein, dairy and grain points that they can spend per month and they wind up getting about 20 pounds per person of food each month and unlike most pantries that just give canned goods, we have a real emphasis on fruits and vegetables and making sure we're giving people a very balanced nutritious diet. >> and you guys can't do the work you do without donations and without volunteers so tell me how you get both. >> it's really important to have the hands and feet of people can help us load, pack, help the volunteers at the food pantry and the staff at the food pantry as well as to make sure the clients who come in know how to use the touch screens. of course we also would like to have more and more people deliver the food so there are
many different ways and, of course, if a person doesn't have time to do that we do need the donations both of food and of cash, especially this time of year. >> i was going to say, it's a holiday season where you have the most need, of course. >> absolutely. we have -- we service more than 7,000 people a year and a thousand people per week need this. >> for more details on how you can help out this great cause, head over to our web site at nbc10.com or check out the nbc 10 app. naomi and brian, thank you for telling us about your federation. appreciate it. >> thank you, vai. there's been a lot of fog around this morning and now there's even manufacture rain that is heading towards areas that aren't even seeing the rain right now. we have a wet wednesday and then things will change. we'll have the sunshine returning tomorrow but we'll also have gusty winds.
