ELKHART – The LaSalle Council of the Boy Scouts of America will host a food drive Saturday, March 8.

In 2013, local scouts collected more than 80,000 items council-wide, including LaPorte, Starke, St. Joseph, Marshall, Porter, Elkhart, Cass and Berrien counties.

According to a press release, food pantries often run low at this time of the year, making donations especially important.

In South Bend, non-perishable food items can be donated from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 8 at Council Headquarters, 1340 South Bend Ave.

In Elkhart, non-perishable food items can be donated from 10 a.m. to noon March 8 at Church Community Services, 907 Oakland Ave.
