Youth for Food
Young people at St. Bernadette and Immaculate Conception churches and the youth of Watkins Methodist Church, collected food for Eastern Area Community Ministries (EACM) as part of the 19th annual Youth for Food collection.
Youth for Food is held in conjunction with the Boys Scouts of America’s “Scouting for Food” and in cooperation with the Dare to Care food drive. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts, along with student groups and other youth at St. Bernadette and Immaculate Conception churches distributed flyers in neighborhoods Nov. 10. The flyers asked residents to set out canned good and non-perishable food items on Nov. 17. The young people returned to the same neighborhoods, picked up the food donations and took them to EACM.
