LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Yum! Brands, the parent company of KFC, celebrated its 16th anniversary as a company by challenging the Louisville community to combat hunger.

Hundreds turned out early to the company's corporate headquarters on Gardiner Lane to help collect more than 16,000 pounds of food for Dare to Care.

Nearly one in six Kentuckiana families struggles to put food on the table and organizers hope this drive can chip away at that number.

"When we raise the 16,000 pounds it's going to provide 13,000 meals for people here in our community," said Angela Osting of Yum! Foundation.

Last year, Yum! Brands collected more than 15,000 pounds of food.
