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 the first Saturday in November, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers and their leaders will deliver Scouting for Food door hangers throughout their neighborhoods and state. On the next Saturday, 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.

If you receive a door hanger, please make sure to leave your donations in a visible location outside your front door or by the base of your mailbox (please do not hang on or put in your mailbox) by <tbd, 2015>. Please avoid donating glass items.

Scouting for food is our biggest annual service project.  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".
