(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) For the 17th year, fighting hunger in St. Joseph is as easy as watching a movie.

The annual "Canned Film Festival got underway Wednesday at the Hollywood Theaters near The Shoppes at North Village.

For the price of a canned good, moviegoers can watch a select family film every Tuesday and Wednesday through August 18.

The cans are donated to the Second Harvest Community Food Bank to use for their many programs giving food to those in need.

Second Harvest staff said the pandemic has led to some shortages in the food supply at the food bank, they're hoping donations can fill the gap.

Michelle Fagerstone, chief development officer of Second Harvest Food Bank, said the bank is accepting all forms of non-perishable food items. 

Last year, the can food drive was canceled due to the pandemic.

Clouds will slowly build back into the area today. Clouds will linger overnight as a cold front moves through and the winds will pick up out of the northwest at 5 to 15 mph. That front will bring us a breezy northerly wind for your Wednesday as well as some cold temperatures. Highs will struggle to warm into the lower 20 on Wednesday, but wind chills will only feel like the single digits during the afternoon. Thursday will be the coldest day of the week. Wind chills still start out sub zero Thursday morning, with temperatures only making it into the teens by the afternoon. Temperatures will slowly start to recover by the weekend.
