WESTERVILLE, Ohio (WCMH) — A Star Wars-themed food drive is set for Westerville tonight, coinciding with Star Wars Day, May the 4th.

The drive-through food drive will recreate a scene from the original Star Wars movie, where Luke Skywalker’s landspeeder was stopped by stormtroopers who were looking for C-3PO and R2-D2. Drivers will drive through the checkpoint and answer questions from the Empire’s footsoldiers.

The event will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Highland Park Aquatic Center at 245 South Spring Road in Westerville.

All perishable food donated at the event will benefit the Westerville Area Resource Ministry food bank.
