“Scouting For Food” Collection This Week

Scouting For Food

It is that time of year again as evidenced by Jackson Hole’s Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts placing door flyers on the front doors of local homes which is phase one of the annual Scouting for Food drive to help stock the local food cupboard.  Food Cupboard Administrator Amy Brooks says this year has demonstrated that the need in the valley continues to be very keen. Brooks says over the last year, the cupboard has had to spend large sums of money to keep food on the shelves – and she hopes this fall’s food drive will do much to re-provision those shelves.  She says among the items most desired are dry foods like cereals, rice and dry beans; fruits, vegetables, tomato products; and during the colder months, chunky soups and stews are very popular.  Brooks says the scouts will make the rounds beginning 9:00 am Saturday to pick up donations. For those who don’t receive a flyer, chances are that scouts will not be coming by on the collection route either.  In that case, Brooks says donations may be left in collection bins placed at the local grocery stores.
