Scouting for Food collecting donations on November 23

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --  Local boy scouts are doing their part to help feed the hungry during the holidays.  The Lincoln Heritage Council of the Boy Scouts is fanning out across the area this weekend to collect canned goods and non-perishables.

On Saturday, November 23, 2013, Scouts will collect food to help the hungry in our community. All food collected will be donated to local food pantries in your county.

Items needed include: canned meats/fish, fruit juice, soups, baby formula, jell-o, pudding mix, pasta, sauces, canned fruit, canned vegetables, baby cereal, powdered milk, peanut butter, hot or cold cereal. No outdated or opened items, please.

This food collection is part of Scouting For Food, an effort by Packs, Troops, and Crews around our nation to fight hunger.

Scouts will collect the food left on the doorsteps of households that receive a Scouting for Food post-it note on their door. Scouting for Food Post Its will be distributed on Saturday, November 16th.

If your house does not receive a Scouting for Food post-it or you do not see an Official Collection Site in your area, you can still participate by taking your food donation directly to one of the below collection centers, to a local Kroger store or to a local food collection site/food pantry in your community.
