Eagle Scout Todd McCoy was lauded recently for building a pantry box for needy people to access food easily.

In a statement, the Hopewell Valley Mobil Food Pantry said: “We have been fortunate to work with a remarkable, young man, Todd McCoy, on his Eagle Scout project. Todd and his family have been supporters of the pantry since day one, and Todd saw an opportunity to extend the pantry’s reach with a self-serve pantry box. With a lot of hard work, communication and collaboration, Todd was able to build and install our new pantry box at the HVRSD Administration building in Pennington Borough. Now anyone who finds themselves in need can have access to food 24 hours a day. Thanks, Todd! Your leadership makes the Hopewell Valley a better place.”

His parents added: Todd Michael McCoy turned 18 years old this past weekend (7/17/22). His final community service act, as a minor, is the ‘The Pennington Pantry Box. Folks can ‘take food as they need, and leave food as they are able.’”

They continued: “Todd is now matriculating towards his Eagle Scout Rank in Scouts BSA in Troop 41 of Pennington through the Washington Crossing Council. This extraordinary man has had an IEP since PEECH, sustained a traumatic brain injury playing baseball in sixth grade, and now he is achieving one of the highest honors in Scouting that few achieve. His parents couldn’t be prouder. “
