An annual tradition of giving is being held today in Minden with the Share Your Holiday Food Drive from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Carson Valley Inn.

Residents and businesses have been collecting food all over Carson Valley in order to donate to the Carson Valley Community Food Closet.

Last year, the food drive collected more than 176,683 pounds of food and $50,026.

The event brings out volunteers from all over the Valley to collect, sort and weigh all the food that was donated throughout the day.

Sponsored by KTVN Channel 2, anchors Arianna Bennett, Ryan Canaday and Zac Mooney will be broadcasting live.
