Hi. It’s Friday, Sept. 23, 2016, and I’m here with your helping of the Morning Scoop. (Subscribe here to get the Scoop in your inbox because I need a reason to wake up this early.)

What You Want to Know

• The Community Food Bank raised enough funds last week to be able to provide a lot of food for local families.
