Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) -- Duluth Area Boy Scouts worked in conjunction with CHUM to collect seven tons of food.

As part of the October SHARE Community Food Drive, the drive is a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors, churches, youth groups, Girl and Boy Scouts students, families, and community organizations participate in this community-wide effort to stock local food shelves.

Meg Kearns of the CHUM Food Shelf shares, "Having more than seven tons of food to distribute as a result of the SHARE Food Drive is certainly cause for celebration for all the local food shelves."

The Voyageurs Area Council, Boy Scouts of America is one of 296 local Boy Scout Councils.

Headquartered in Hermantown and serving a 42,000 square mile territory, the council provides Scouting to nearly 4,000 young people annually through partnerships with over 120 community organizations and their more than 1,300 volunteer leaders.
