Volunteers pick-up food for the hungry

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.—The Tri-Cities community teamed-up Saturday to help feed the hungry.  Volunteers drove around going door to door to pick-up food for the National Letter Carriers Food Drive.  It is put on by Second Harvest and letter carriers.

People were broken-up into teams and had designated routes.  One helper says he decided to help organize the event fro his Eagle Scouts project.     

"It just means I'm helping the community.  I'm making it better.  I'm effecting the community in a positive way," says Parker Floyd, Eagle Scout and organizer.

All of the food was dropped off at Second Harvest in Kennewick.  Last year 25,000 pounds of food was collected.  They hope to double that number this year.
