Visit Kroger at I-55 in Jackson on Saturday, August 26th, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. and help support the MS Food Network BackPack Program. Boy Scouts from St. Richard's Troop 30 will greet Kroger customers with a shopping list of needed food items. Shoppers can purchase items from the list and give it to a Scout as they leave the store. For a list of items, click here. Monetary donations are also welcome.
Donations will be delivered by Troop 30 to the Mississippi Food Network for use in the BackPack Program, which provides food to school-age children in need throughout central Mississippi. Find out more about the BackPack Program here.
During last year's Scouts Helping Kids food drive, Kroger shoppers donated over 2,000 pounds of food and $548 in cash gifts for the MFN BackPack Program. The food was sorted into meals, and the cash donations allowed three additional central Mississippi children to be added to the program. Help make this year’s food drive even more successful!
