JACKSON HOLE, WYO – The “Scouting for Food” event 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.
The 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’s Episcopal Church.
Since 1985, the Boy Scouts of America have hosted “Scouting for Food” to help fight hunger in our community. Residents 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.
Pizza For a Purpose!
Hand Fire Pizza has committed to help support the community by participating in Pizza for a Purpose. On Tuesday, November 7, Jackson Cupboard will receive $4 for every large pizza and $2 for every small pizza sold 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?
Food For Fines
Do you owe the Teton County Library overdue fines? Through the month of November, the library will accept nonperishable food in lieu of payment to be donated to the Jackson Cupboard.
