Both the Boy and Girl Scouts have been delivering door hangers announcing the Nov. 6 food drive. Last year, 140,000 pounds of food was collected for distribution by Second Harvest Food Bank, according to Lane Calvert, scout executive. On Saturday, the Scouts will be back, picking up the sacks of donated food which will be taken to a collection site at 801 Dover Drive, Newport Beach, where Rotarians, Interact Club members and other volunteers will pack them into a semitrailer for delivery to Second Harvest. Donations may also be dropped off at Albertsons grocery stores on Saturday. For more information, call (949) 653-2900.
