The county’s largest food drive is in high gear today as Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts fanned out across the county picking up bags of donations left by residents.
The Scouting for Food campaign collects around 100,000 pounds of donations each year.
By noon, 20,000 pounds of food donations had already been unloaded and sorted at the Loudoun Hunger Relief storage space behind South King Street Rite-Aid in Leesburg.
Similar drop off and sorting operations are happening at seven other food pantries:
Catholic Charities in Leesburg; the Dulles South Food Pantry at the Arcola Methodist Church; LINK in Sterling; Loudoun Hunger Relief storage space behind South King Street Rite-Aid in Leesburg; Messiah’s Market in Ashburn; Seven Loaves in Middleburg; Tree of Life in Purcellville; and the Western Loudoun Food Pantry in Lovettsville.
