Queen Anne Cub & Boy Scouts “Scouting for Food” event collects 1,050 lbs of food

Posted on March 25th, 2010 by master


Last week the Queen Anne Cub Scouts (Troops 70 & 72) went “Scouting for Food,” collecting donated food and toiletries in an annual drive for local food banks. After collecting over 600 pounds of food last year, the scouts set their sights a little higher, aiming to reach 1,000 in the 2010 drive.

Between the two troops, the scouts were able to collect over 800 pounds of donations, which when paired with the 250 pounds collected by the Queen Anne Boy Scouts, added up to over 1,050 pounds!

According to scout parent and 2010 Scouting for Food campaign co-chair Mary Chapman, the majority of the food was donated to the Ballard Food Bank, and another 100 pounds of food and toiletries were given to the Queen Anne Helpline. Chapman wrote,

The Ballard Food Bank thanked the Queen Anne Scouts profusely, saying that their food supplies are very low this time of year.  Recently the Ballard Food Bank has had double the number of requests for assistance – up to 1,400 families a month – compared to an average of 700 just two years ago.

Thanks to the Scouts and their parents for putting this drive together, and to everyone who donated!
