The Boy Scouts will conduct one of the nation's largest food drives Saturday, going door-to-door collecting non-perishable items for local food banks.

Here in the Bay Area more than 40,000 scouts will be picking up boxed or bagged food placed on doorsteps by 9 a.m.

The drive is called "Scouting for Food" with a Bay Area goal of collecting 450,000 pounds of food this year.
