The need for food has stayed high, but the executive director of Common Heart, Keith Adams, says a drop in food donations has been hurting the people they serve.

“We’ve had to really cut back on what we could give to folks to make sure everybody has what we serve,” Adams told Channel 9′s Gina Esposito.
