Puss in Boots food drive

Marquee Cinemas will host a food drive with the release of Puss in Boots 3D.

In keeping with the theme, the movie theater will accept boxes of shelf-stable milk and cans of tuna.

But they’ll also take other items desperately needed at the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank, like cereal, peanut butter, canned vegetables and 100% juice.

You can donate through Nov. 13, and for every two pounds of food you donate, you will be entered to win a family four-pack of tickets. That’s about seven cans of tuna, in case you don’t feel like weighing your food at home.
