HARRINGTON, Del. - If you're thinking about heading to the State Fair  Monday night, you might want to check your cupboards for extra cans of food. For the second year in a row, Food Lion is helping collect canned foods at the front gate of the Delaware State Fair.

If you bring five cans with you, you get an entry ticket free of charge. And It's all for the Food Bank of Delaware. Last year, workers say they brought in 15,000 pounds of food and are looking to double that total this year.

Larry Haas, Dev. Director of the Delaware Food Bank, says "we have two facilities one in Newark, and one in Milford just down the road from here, so the majority of the product that comes here that through donations will go to our facility in Milford so it will go to help, feed our networks of partners in Kent and Sussex County."

Workers will be out until 11 tonight, so make sure you're bringing cans before you head out.
