Scouting for Food

Posted: Thursday, Nov 29th, 2012

Mendota area scouts went door to door in Mendota on Nov.17 collecting food for the Mendota Christian Food Pantry. They had 29 scouts total with Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts participating. The scouts worked together to make a big difference in our community–they collected 815 pounds of food and $155 in donations from the generous residents of Mendota! Mendota Area Christian Food pantry manager, Liz Bedford, talked with the scouts and thanked them for their efforts to help others in our community. She said that this food drive was one of the top five food drives for the pantry since 2009. (Photo contributed)
