LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The parent company of KFC is celebrating its 15th anniversary as a company by challenging the Louisville community to combat hunger.

Yum! Brands is looking to collect 15,000 pounds of food for Dare to Care.

With nearly one in six Kentuckiana families struggling to put food on the table, Stan Siegwald with Dare to Care said the food brought in today will be the equivalent of 13,000 meals.

"Folks right now are struggling to get the food they need to be healthy," said Siegwald. "This is a way for the community to come together and help them meet that challenge." 

You don't even have to get out of your car to donate. Just stop by the Yum! Brands headquartes on Gardiner Lane across from the main post office and you can drop off your donations from your car.

George Novak, the CEO of Yum! Brands, was recently recognized by the United Nations as an ambassador against hunger.
