LDS Scouts in San Francisco Bay Area Food Drive

DANVILLE, CALIFORNIA -- An LDS scout troop was featured in the Tri-Valley Herald last week for its planned participation in the annual "Scouting for Food" program in the San Francisco Bay Area. Troop 805 in Danville, California, was scheduled to collect food in their area for the food drive.

The annual drive started the weekend before last, as Scouts dropped off bags at each house in an assigned area with a note asking for donations. This past Saturday, they went back to the same houses, to collect the donated food. However, Troop 805 wasn't able to pass out the bags in advance that weekend, and instead went door-to-door seeking donations.

Troop member Justin Yarkin, a Monte Vista High School sophomore says this is his third year in the program, "I think it's a really good thing for a Boy Scout troop to do." The Scouts were to bring the collected donations to the LDS Chapel in Danville, and from there the donations went to be sorted and distributed by the Contra Costa Food Bank in Concord. Donations from Scouting for Food totaled 96,000 pounds last year.
