Area Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts collected 2,560 food items this weekend. The area scouts held their annual “Scouting for Food” event in Washington on Saturday and collected 700 more items than last year. The food collected will be used for the Saturday Kitchen, some will be given to WACO Elementary School for the Friday take home meals and most of the food was given to IC Compassion at the Community of Hope Center in Washington. The food pantry is open Mondays from 4 to 7:30 p.m. and is located at the corner of 15th Street and 5th Avenue.
