ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Local Boy Scouts were out in the St. Louis area on Saturday morning collecting donations for their annual “Scouting for Food” campaign.

The scouts picked up bags of food from local neighborhoods and delivered them to nearby fire stations.

From the fire stations, the food is boxed up and given out to more than 500 food pantries in the St. Louis area.

Organizers say the scouts collected nearly 2 million food items during this year’s event.
