The Church of Beatitudes Bishop’s Pantry was the recipient for Boy Scout Troop 329’s Scouting for Food Drive. During the month of January, the 329 Scouts collected 950 food items with the help of the Safeway store at 7th Street and Glendale Avenue, where the Scouts greeted customers in front of the store and requested donations.

The Scouts completed the project with a final day of service, which entailed delivering and unloading the collected food to Church of Beatitudes Bishop’s Pantry, sorting it into food groups, stocking the shelves, and then making 100 food bags that the church gives out to individuals seeking assistance.

Through this project, the Scouts were able to experience firsthand how their individual efforts can make a difference to the people living in their community.
