Collecting the food is a full-day job. We collect for 3~4 hours then take a break for lunch before resuming collection efforts. While the scouts are out collecting during the afternoon, the "mom squad" is busy at the Community Center sorting, counting, and re-boxing.
The last step in the process is delivering the food to local pantries. There are two local churches that operate programs were families needing assistance can receive it, so we divide our collection between them. Part of what we collect is delivered to First Baptist Church in Shepherdsville and the rest to Trinity Life Center, also in Shepherdsville.
