MEDINA – Scouts from Troop 35 and Troop 28 on Saturday held their annual Scouting For Food Event.

Cub Scouts from Pack 35 and Pack 28 walked through the Village of Medina on the previous week putting door hangers for the Scouting For Food event.

Then the scouts from both Troop 35 & Troop 28 went this past Saturday door to door to pick up any donated food from the community and delivered the donated food to the local area food pantries.

St. Peter’s Lutheran Medina Emergency Food Pantry and Calvary Tabernacle split this year’s donation. Historically the Troops would switch off every other year between the two food pantries but with last year, not being able to do this event due to the pandemic it was decided to share between the two organizations.
