For every pound lost by its members, Weight Watchers will donate the cost of one pound of food. The campaign ends Oct. 18.
The organization is also encouraging employees and members to participate in food drives. In Cornelius, the food collected at the Weight Watchers meeting location will be donated to Cooperative Christian Ministry. The group meets at the Cornelius Chair Factory, 20700 N.
