ENGLEWOOD - With the down economy and the need created by Hurricane Irene, the Center for Food Action in Englewood is struggling to keep food on the shelves.

At the center, volunteers are working to fill care packages for families in need. The director says, "we're seeing about an extra 400 people a month, every month, over what we were already seeing in 2010 and that was already a high year."

The Center for Food Action supplies seven-day emergency food packages to those in need. Each adds up to about $170 worth of food.
