Alameda Elks help Boy Scouts with their annual Scouting for Food drive for the Alameda food bank. 20,000 pounds of food was collected which will help provide food for local families, and Santa Rosa/ Napa fire victims. The local community put in over 10,000 man hours over a 3 week period to make this years food drive a huge success.
This amount of food will only last about 3 months, but the Food Bank accepts donations and helps support local families year round.
