WEINER, AR (KAIT) -

The Travel Channel will feature a Region 8 community Saturday.

The Travel Channel sent a crew to Weiner in August 2015 to feature the town on a show called "Food Towns USA."

The show features towns across the United States with food names.

While the feature was supposed to air in November 2015, community members said they were told the show, now called "Hungrytown, U.S.A.," will air Saturday, April 30.

According to TVGuide.com, "Hungrytown, U.S.A." premieres at 11 a.m. Saturday on the Travel Channel.

The 11 o’clock episode is titled “Building 3 Square Meals” and features Hot Coffee, MS, Weiner, AR and Pietown, NM.

A second episode airing at 11:30 a.m. titled “This American Townwich" features Sandwich, IL, Mayo, FL and Turkey, TX.

Members of the Weiner community shared the news on Facebook and hope many will tune in.
