Members of Eudora Boy Scout Troop 64 joined with members of Cub Scout Pack 3064, Eudora 4-H Club, Eudora Girl Scout troops, and Eudora High School’s Honor Society to gather more than 3,100 food items for the Eudora Ministerial Alliance Food Pantry on March 31. With help from the adult leaders, friends and volunteer staff at the food pantry, which is housed at the St. Paul’s United Church of Christ in Eudora, they picked up bags of non-perishable food from around Eudora and delivered them to the food pantry. Troop 64, chartered to the Eudora Lions Club, meets on Mondays at the Nottingham Center.
