Scouting for Food times

How long does it take you’re units to distribute scouting for food bags? Then how long to pickup food the following week?

Usually no more than a couple hours each day )a couple to put out bags one Saturday, and a couple or three the following Saturday to collect foods). we service a about half-dozen neighborhoods/areas around our meeting location, we have them divided up on maps we hand out to the drivers so it makes divides the load up pretty well.

When we collect we usually have a crew to sort the food items for the food bank so as soon as a bag comes in it gets sorted. buy the time the last driver gets back 90% of the work is done. We sort the final load, then turn it all over to the food bank.
