COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Boy scouts came by the droves to deliver food to the Harvest Hope Food Bank Saturday.

The scouts brought in about 5,100 pounds of food which is about 4,000 meals.

Last week, the scouts left bags throughout their neighborhoods as part of their "Scouting for Food" food drive.

"The community in the area has raised every year 1 million pounds, that's a lot of cans," said Chris Daly with Harvest Hope. "Basically if you take that same logic that's a million items that have been generated from just food drives alone where people basically just give a can. So it's fantastic. We rely on that food supply."

Daly said every effort makes a definite impact on the community.
