This year's Rock Out Hunger campaign is now one for the record books.

The 10th annual food drive collected a record 4,000 turkeys for the Food Bank of Western New York. The number of turkeys donated nearly doubled the previous record set in 2012.

97 Rock's DJ Jickster lived in a 48-foot trailer in the Eastern Hills Mall parking lot collecting food and cash for a week.

In addition to turkeys, the community donated nearly 20,000 pounds of food and more than $20,000 in cash.

Channel 7 is a proud sponsor of this annual event.
