(KSL News) -- Three days until Thanksgiving and food banks across the country are seeing bare shelves.

Donations are down 12-percent in Los Angeles, 30-percent in New York City, and more than 50-percent in Milwaukee and Denver, according to America's Second Harvest network.

A spokeswoman for the Food Bank for New York City says the drop in donations is a direct result of the outpouring following Hurricane Katrina.

The Utah Food Bank has so far collected 1.2 million pounds of food. The goal is 1.8 million pounds.
