JACKSON HOLE, WYO \u2013 The\u00a0\u201cScouting for Food\u201d\u00a0event held last Saturday October 28 has concluded. Collections totaled 193 cases, which equates to 5,790 items. If Jackson Cupboard lined up each item, it would wrap around town square 33 times. A total of 146 volunteers participated, including Scouts who put out door flyers and picked up the food. Volunteers put in 435 hours of their own time.\r\n\r\nThe Jackson Cupboard would like to thank all participants including the local Boy Scouts, volunteers, and their sponsors: Albertsons, Falls Printing, Grand Teton Council, McDonald's, Melaleuca, Pearl Street Bagels, U-Pac, and St. John\u2019s Episcopal Church.\r\n\r\nSince 1985, the Boy Scouts of America have hosted \u201cScouting for Food\u201d\u00a0to help fight hunger in our community.\u00a0Residents were encouraged to leave nonperishable food items on their doorstep for Scouts to collect. All donations were distributed to the Jackson Cupboard to help those in need. If you were not able to participate this year, you may drop off items at the Jackson Cupboard Monday's or Thursday's 10am to 12pm.\r\n\r\nPizza For a Purpose!\u00a0\r\n\r\nHand Fire Pizza\u00a0has committed to help support the community by participating in Pizza for a Purpose. On Tuesday, November 7, Jackson Cupboard\u00a0will receive\u00a0$4 for every large pizza and $2 for every small pizza\u00a0sold to the general public. If you were thinking about pizza next week, why not make it Tuesday night at Hand Fire Pizza in the Old Teton Theatre building off the town square?\r\n\r\nFood For Fines\u00a0\r\n\r\nDo you owe the Teton County Library overdue fines?
