HungerBusters strike again

   Over 50 youths from churches in the Snoqualmie Valley and Woodinville will be collecting non-perishable food items in the Duvall-Carnation area on Saturday, Oct. 31 from 6-9 p.m. This is the eighth consecutive year for the program.
  
   The goal this year is to collect 5,000 items for the Sno-Valley Food Bank and the Duvall Church Food Bank.
  
   Items needed include canned fruits, vegetables, meat, pasta, rice, soup, canned and boxed meals. cereal, peanut butter, dry beans, flour, sugar, fruit baby food and toilet paper.
   Parents volunteer to drive a team of kids and cover an assigned route.
  
   The kids wear a sticker that identifies them as a HungerBuster (the word "hunger" has a red circle with a line through it) or have a handout that says "We're from HungerBusters."
  
   The kids do this for those in their community who may not have enough to eat this winter and it gives them an opportunity to do something positive on a night that often has some negative activities going on.
