Eagle Scout Project to Help Food Bank

“For I was hungry and you gave me food…” -Matthew 25:35

From Scout Troop 74 member John Albright:

Jesus tells us to help others, and one of the easiest ways is to donate food to a food bank. In Georgia, one in four children don’t get enough food each day. For my Boy Scout Eagle Service Project, I am holding a food drive to help support the Atlanta Community Food Bank, and through them, the hungry in Georgia. You can participate by placing food in the collection barrels, labeled Atlanta Community Food Bank, conveniently located in the youth hall upstairs. By donating, you are helping the hungry in Georgia to have enough food on the table.

Some of the most needed items are:

  • Canned fruits and vegetables
  • Canned tuna, chicken, or salmon
  • Canned or dried beans, peas, or lentils
  • Whole grain pasta or flour
  • Brown rice, barley, quinoa,
  • Whole grain cereal
  • Shelf-stable milk (dairy, soy, rice, etc.)
  • Natural peanut butter
  • Olive or canola oil (plastic containers)
  • Paper products
  • Diapers
  • Toiletries
