Mike Lester from Sons of the American Legion stands with some of the items the group will be looking for in its food drive Nov. 14.

The eighth annual Sons of the American Legion food drive will be held Nov. 14 in Viola from 1-4 p.m.

The group is collecting food items as well as baby products like diapers, wipes, hygiene items, soap and shampoo.

Items collected during the food drive will go to the VIola Food Pantry located at the Viola Methodist Church.

Mike Lester, a spokesman for the Sons of the American Legion, said, "The community has always supported the food drive. We collected 800 pounds of food last year. We are averaging about 900 pounds of food a year and have probably collected about 6,000 pounds of food in the past eight years."
