Bend Cub, Boy Scouts ‘Scouting for Food’ Saturday


Bend-area Cub and Boy Scouts in Central Oregon are taking part Saturday in the annual Scouting for Food Drive, in conjunction with the Salvation Army.

From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Scouts will go door to door in their assigned areas, collecting food to help those hungry and in need to get through the long, cold winter.

They will be bringing the food to a Salvation Army truck parked in the south Albertsons lot. Redmond collections were done last week, officials said.

Especially helpful donations include: Canned meats/protein, soups, peanut butter, beans, dried pasta, hot/cold cereal, canned fruits and vegetables and powdered milk.

Since 1985, Scouts have collected over 200 million pounds of food, making this the single largest food collection effort in the nation’s history, officials said.

Not only does Scouting for Food help feed the hungry of our communities, it teaches Scouts that hunger is a serious problem.

Millions of people go hungry every day. By participating in Scouting for Food, a Scout realizes there is a problem and can help be a part of the solution. Scouting for Food provides a great service to our communities.

Way to go, Scouting!
