Northwest Guilford High School students stock shelves inside the Vikings Vittles Vault. The food pantry is in the midst of a month-long food drive. To date, the students have distributed close to 10,000 pounds of food to more than 500 Guilford County residents in need.

As part of its Oktoberfest Fall Food Drive, Vikings Vittles Vault is collecting different kinds of food all throughout the month of October.

During the first week of the month, the Northwest Guilford High School student-led group collected fruits and vegetables. Through Oct. 12, the students are asking for proteins.

From Oct. 15 through 19, foods such as peanut butter, jelly and cereal are the requested donations. In the fourth week of the month, pasta, soup and sauce are on the list for donations - no glass jars will be accepted. Finally, crackers, snacks, juice and any other items will be accepted.

Donation points are at Northwest Guilford High School, BB&T's Oak Ridge Branch, Lowes Foods in Oak Ridge Commons, The Rush Fitness Complex in the Brassfield Shopping Center and Elite Performance Chiropractic on New Garden Road.

Additionally, the Vikings Vittles Vault will have a donation box set up at the entrance of R.L. Billings Stadium for Northwest's home football game against East Forsyth.

All food collected will be distributed on Oct. 20 and Nov. 17.
