Here are the results for Week 5 of Build a Mountain of Food campaign, which made stops in Portland and Merrickville this weekend.

Merrickville saw 1,650 pounds of food come in and $1,861.75 donated in support of the Merrickville Lions Christmas Hamper Campaign.

That means that so far, 219,848 lbs of food has been collected, and $72,387.77 donated this year.

The final stop comes up next week when we will be in Athens and Delta.

Also of note, the Build a Mountain of Food float will be in the Smiths Falls Santa Claus Parade this coming Saturday.
