Two Boy Scout troops, including Troop 70, and one Cub Scout pack are collecting nonperishable food items for their annual food drive to benefit Queen Anne Food Bank.

The Scouts will pick up food donations on Saturday, April 5, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., from homes between West Galer and McGraw streets and Queen Anne Avenue and Eighth Avenue West.

Troop members distributed door hangers announcing the event on March 29.

Needed nonperishable canned and bottled food include tuna, peanut butter, beans, rice and cereal. Food items past their expiration date will not be accepted.
