William Winslow, 13, and Alexander Winslow, 9, have assembled more than 150 volunteers to collect food outside 10 grocery stores in Raleigh, Cary, Apex and Durham.
They are hoping to collect 10,000 pounds of food and $10,000 to help feed children who don't have access to food on the weekends as part of the Backpack Buddy program.
It's the seventh year William has led the Triangle-area food drive.
The effort is timed to coincide with Global Youth Service Day during the week of April 22.
