Tomorrow, March 24, a local Boy Scout troop will be collecting non-perishable food items to donate to the Ballard Food Bank. Ballard Pack 100 of the Chief Seattle Council will be at both Ballard Safeway locations (15th Ave NW/NW Market St. and 15th Ave NW/NW 85th St.) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The collection is known as the national “Scouting for Food” drive, which provides more than 500,000 cans of food annually to food banks. According to the local Scout’s website, March is the month when the food banks are at their lowest levels. To learn more about the Chief Seattle Council Boy Scouts, visit their website
