COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - An organization is working to help Ronald McDonald House Charities of Columbia round up food, money and supplies.

On Wednesday, American Farm Bureau Women's Leadership Committee representatives from more than 10 South Carolina counties are scheduled to make deliveries as part of Food Check-Out Week.

Since the program started in the 1990s, organizers say Food Check-Out Week has had Farm Bureau members donate more than $3 million in food and monetary contributions to Ronald McDonald Houses and other worthwhile charities.

The donations help families staying at the Ronald McDonald House have what they need to put together a home-cooked meal.
