This Saturday, Boy Scouts make it easy for you to support the KEYE TV Food Drive

July 30, 2010 § 1 Comment

KEYE TV is teaming up with Randalls grocery stores and the Capitol Area Boy Scouts for the 10th annual Food Drive benefiting the Food Bank. Here are three ways to participate:

  1. If you received a door hanger about the drive,  Boy Scouts will deliver your donation to the Food Bank. Place healthy, non-perishable food on your doorstep for Boy Scouts to pick up on Saturday, July 31. Click here to  see what items we need the most.
  2. Donate food at your local Randalls. Look for collection barrels at any Austin-area Randalls or purchase pre-packaged bags of food at the entrance of participating stores.
  3. Donate funds.  You can add $1 or $5 to your Randalls grocery bill upon checkout using special scan coupons, or click here to donate online to the Food Bank. Your donation goes a long way— every $5 donation provides $25 worth of nutritious food for hungry Central Texans.

Fun Facts:

  • The Capitol Area Boy Scouts’ scouting for food program has helped feed hungry Central Texans since the 80’s.
  • In 2009, the food drive helped raise more than $13,000 and 60,000 pounds of food for hungry Central Texans.
  • More than 1,000 pre-packaged bags were purchased in 2009.

Thank you to our sponsors: KEYE TV, Randalls, and Capitol Area Boy Scouts.
