Portsmouth Scouts Collect Food

Thank you to all that participated in this year’s Scouting for Food project.
As you know, this morning the donated food was collected and taken to North
Church Parish Hall for sorting, tallying and packaging.  After all donations
were packaged the boxes were taken to the Armory in Portsmouth, NH.  The
final tally of items collected was 3,503 (almost 1,000 more than last
year!).   Items collected consisted mostly of boxed and canned goods.  One
bag of toiletries and paper goods were also collected along with four boxes
of items in glass jars.

3,000 Flyers

Again thank you to all that helped to make this year’s Scouting for Food a
huge success.  The items collected will go to area food pantries to assist
those that are in need. All Scouts should be very proud of the role that
they played in helping to make this event run so smoothly.

Great job and Thank you!





(Portsmouth, NH 11/05/15) – Scouting for Food is an annual food collection drive orchestrated by Scouts from the statewide Daniel Webster Council. Local Scouts from Pack and Troop 164 in Portsmouth distribute door hangers in local neighborhoods, and return one week later to collect food. Collected food is then distributed to families in need through the statewide Council.


"This is our largest, city-wide community service project,” said Jeffrey Franas, Cubmaster of Pack 164. He added, "At a time when our thoughts turn to giving thanks for what we have it is important to remember that there are families in our community that depend on this emergency food aid every week."


Scouting for Food is just one way the Boy Scouts of America works to improve communities across the nation. Scouts are active cleaning up parks, building houses, gathering for the needy, and even helping with disaster preparedness. All of this is in an effort to provide opportunities for youth to learn and grow.


When and Where

  • Door hangers will be distributed in Portsmouth neighborhoods on November 7.

  • Bags will be collected on November 14.

  • If residents do not get a flier on their door, they can still participate. A drop off location at the North Church Parish Hall located at 355 Spinney Road will be available from 9am - 11am on Saturday, November 14. Volunteers will be on hand to help with food drop off.


What is Needed

All types of nonperishable foods are welcomed. High-priority items include 100 percent juice boxes, peanut butter, tuna and other canned protein, granola bars, low sugar jelly, nuts (small packs), chickpeas, black beans, and low sugar cereals. Small containers of olive oil, ketchup, mayo, and mustard are also on the Scouting for Food wish list. Household items such as toilet paper, tissues, soap, toothpaste, shampoo, and baby food are also needed. Please no perishable items and no glass.
