Cub Scouts partners with Storehouse NM for ‘Scouting for Food’

Scouting for Food drive happening this weekend

This weekend at the Albertsons on Tramway and Academy, Scouts will be Scouting for Food to help those in need in our area.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Local Cub Scouts will be “Scouting for Food” this weekend in Albuquerque to support Storehouse New Mexico.

Scouts from Cub Scout Packs and BSA Troops in Northeast Albuquerque will be at the Albertsons on Academy and Tramway from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Each day, you can bring canned and shelf-stable foods to them. That includes nonperishable food items, like canned soups/stews, peanut butter, tuna and more.

Last year, the Scouts say their efforts provided almost 14,000 meals to families in central New Mexico. This year, they’re aiming for 15,000 meals.

If you can’t make it, you can also donate online. The Scouts stopped by to explain more.
