Scouting For Food Gearing Up

October 16, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments
Scouting For Food

The door fliers have been distributed now and local scouts and scouters are organizing for the big pick-up Saturday morning as the young men go from door to door in their annual Scouting for Food drive.  Amy Brooks of the Jackson Food Cupboard says the annual food drive yields critical contributions to the cupboard.  She says things are very slow for people this time of year and the seasonal jobs are coming to an end.  Additionally, she says the food stamp program has been cut back dramatically, and she anticipates the cupboard will see a greater demand because of that. Brooks says unlike some years ago, the scouts are not distributing plastic bags for the collection since they tended to frequently blow away and litter the town.  She asks that those making donations simply use the grocery bags they receive in their own shopping.  Scouts will be making the rounds about 9:00 am and residents are ask to have the bags of groceries on their front porches in time for the collection.  If not, Brooks says, “You might hear a knock on your door if you haven’t put your bag out – so don’t be alarmed if you see a [young] cub scout there, standing at your door hoping that you’ll give him a bag of food.”
