Scouting for Food

Did you realize that one of every three people served by food banks are children? It is reported today nearly one of four people in soup kitchen lines is likely to be a child. More than one in three households being helped by local food banks and pantries includes children. The "Scouting for Food" effort benefits more than 150 pantries, kitchens and closets throughout New Hampshire.

On Saturday November 1st our Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts will deliver Scouting for Food door hangers throughout Portsmouth neighborhoods. The following Saturday, November 8th our scouts will return to collect the donated non-perishable food items left outside with and take them to a convenient drop off location within their local communities.

Scouting for food is our biggest service project of the year.  Our Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts work together to collect food to stock our local food pantries for the winter.  It is a great opportunity to help our kids understand about "giving back".
