Scouting for Food Drive Set for Saturday, March 5

The Greenwich Council of Boy Scouts of America annual “Scouting for Food” drive is set for Saturday, March 5, 2022.

Food donations can be brought to Greenwich Police Headquarters, 11 Bruce Place, Greenwich from 8:30am – 12:30pm.

Boy Scouts

Residents are encouraged to drop-off non-perishable items, such as beans, black or red – dried or canned; tuna, chili, canned fruit, vienna sausage, boxed milk, pasta, pasta sauce, peanut butter and jelly, oatmeal, and other cereals.

Please be sure to check that the expiration date is still good. All donated food will go to Neighbor to Neighbor for their food pantry to help fill the increasing need for food for families in the area, especially during non-holiday times, such as March. A large percentage of the food provided by Neighbor to Neighbor feeds children and their families at or below the poverty level.

Since its inception in 1912, Greenwich Scouting goals have remained the same, emphasizing youth adventure, leadership, learning, outdoor exploration, and perhaps most importantly, service. Scouts are encouraged to “Do a Good Turn Daily.”

Last year, the drive brought in roughly 8,000 lbs of food and Scouts hope to surpass that number in 2022.
