Town of Lancaster, N.Y. (WKBW) -- Well, he's at it again. DJ Jickster is camped out in a Food Bank of Western New York trailer in front of Quaker Steak and Lube on Transit Road in Lancaster. He'll spend day and night in the trailer...except for bathroom breaks...for one week, trying to fill the trailer with groceries.

Jickster understands how great the need is, "The food bank needs food through out the year...but especially around holiday time they get tapped out pretty good. As a mater of fact when we started this rock out hunger campaign on Wednesday...the Food Bank of Western New York had absolutely no turkeys in stock. He have helped them do that...we have over 14 hundred turkeys so far."

People have been bring food steadily for the last few days. Pat Maghrak from Wheatfield, is on his way to work. he thought it was a perfect time to drop off two turkeys. He has advise for other Western New Yorkers, "I know it's pretty tough these days...so, if you have something extra you can give to help out. I just try to do what I can."

Jickster hopes the community of Western New York comes through just as they have for the past four years of rock out hunger. This year turkey donations are ahead of last year. Jickster says he doesn't mind not getting a lot of sleep....so you can stop by and drop off turkeys, food or cash anytime through Wednesday morning.
