Morinville – Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be hitting doorsteps Oct. 13, collecting food to help restock local food bank shelves depleted after Thanksgiving.

Last year’s food drive raised 3,320 pounds of food for the Morinville Food Bank Society, and the church is looking to help once again.

The church members are once again doing the food pick up as a way to emulate Jesus Christ by serving their fellow man.
