BRIDGEPORT - An 11-year old boy in Bridgeport is hoping for a big turnout this weekend at his annual food drive.

Jeremy Rosa says this is the fifth year of holding what's been named Jeremy's Food Drive.

Jeremy says he started the annual collection when he was 7 years old, because he was sad to hear about people in his own community who didn't have enough food.

Earlier this week, he was collecting donations from businesses in Bridgeport, ahead of the main food drive this Saturday at Blackham School in Bridgeport.

Jeremy's Food Drive runs from noon to 4 p.m. tomorrow.
