Telecommunications provider CenturyLink Inc. is donating about $57,000 to a food bank that serves northeastern Kansas and the Kansas City area.

Employees of the Monroe, La.- based company collected nearly 99,000 pounds of food for the Harvesters Community Food Network during an annual food drive. The donation will be supplemented with a $57,000 check to be presented Friday by the company's foundation.

About 40 CenturyLink employees also be at the Harvesters warehouse in Kansas City to assemble food-filled backpacks that go home with needy children on weekends. Children who depend on government-subsidized school meals often go hungry on weekends. That's why charities like Harvesters have stepped up to help.

Harvesters says 37 percent of the people it serves are children.
