Review for Food Finders Food Bank Inc, LAFAYETTE, IN, USA
Food Finders Food Bank (FFFB) offers a variety of areas for anyone to help, which is part of what makes it a great organization. I have had many opportunities to sort and label food for distribution with my team from work, which is great for team building for any work group.
I also reached out the them to see where my sons Cub Scout group could help. FFFB helped identify about a half dozen areas/Projects that they could help our community outside the FFFB facilities since they were to young to be in one of their facilities.
Our scouts were able collect food donations totaling over 400lbs the last couple years. The food drive for our scouts has become a great tradition for our entire pack.
Our scouts also made laundry detergent for FFFB, which is needed for several FFFB clients in our local area on a monthly basis. The scouts had to first collect plastic bottles for the detergent which aligns with our efforts to teach the scouts about the importance of recycling. Our den was able to produce 234 bottles of detergent for FFFB. We now plan to expand this to our entire Scout Pack in the future.
The opportunities that FFFB has provided for our scouts has helped educate them on the importance of helping out and giving back to our community. The scouts learned that there are a variety of ways they can help as an individuals and the importance of giving back to their community. They also experience first hand how big of an impact they can make when they team up to help others.
