Boy Scouts and volunteers from the local Minsi Trails Boy Scout Council will be out Saturday, Nov. 10 collecting non-perishable food for the annual Scouting For Food community food drive. Door hangers will be delivered in many area neighborhoods letting residents know about the food drive. For residents who do not get a door hanger, food may be dropped off at many participating business locations. For a complete list of locations visit www.scouting4food.com.
This is one of the area’s largest single-day food drives. Last year Scouting For Food brought in nearly 200,000 pounds of food for local food banks. That’s enough food to feed over 8,000 people for a week. 2012 is the Scout’s 26th year conducting the annual food drive, with over three million pounds of food being distributed to local food banks during this period.
