The St. Scholastica Knights of Columbus Council 14485 in Lecanto recently held their annual brown bag food drive to collect food items for less fortunate families. 

The council passed out brown paper bags to St. Scholastica parishioners with a list of suggested nonperishable food items to donate. The bags were returned and filled with food items.

The food collected was donated to the Daystar Life Center in Crystal River, where the food is distributed as needed. The Knights collected 4,280 pounds of nonperishable food items. Checks and Publix gift cards totaling $545 were also collected. 

Meat was then purchased with the proceeds from the checks and gift cards, bringing the total of food collected to 7,307 pounds.
