THE BRONX - A report shows that food bank donations are down in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

The report also shows the need for donations grew after many people turned to food pantries for help.

Organizers say they now feed 60 percent more people than they did in the past. With Thanksgiving just days away, officials are concerned that there will not be enough food to hand out to families.
