"It's just more incentive when there's a contest, " said Danielle Saretsky with Curves Humboldt. "It seems people give a little bit more."

Saretsky said she likes putting on the annual food drive, seeing it as a way to give back.

Kevin Reiter, the food bank's chair, said it's donations like these that keep them going.

"The people in Humboldt are so generous. Because of them, we have enough food to serve 90 to 110 families a month."
