CHUM has enlisted the help of boy scout troops to help feed the community.

Boy Scouts and CHUM members were stationed at grocery stores across the Northland collecting food and monetary donations.
Shoppers were encouraged to buy a little something extra that would help check off Chum's needed items list.

Chum goes through 10 tons of food per month and is always in need of more help.

While the boy scouts were more than willing to lend a hand they weren't the only community members pitching in.

"Right behind me we've got some guys from the UMD fraternity, we've got some people from our CHUM congregations, we've got middle school kids helping out and we've got individuals that just want to help," says Meg Kearns, Director of Distribution Services at CHUM.

If you missed the food drive but still would like to help many grocery stores have ongoing collection barrels.

The event coincides with National Making a Difference Day.
