Scouts collecting food Saturday
Boy Scouts around the area will be collecting food for food banks Saturday morning.
The Scouts distributed post-it notes last weekend to neighborhoods where they are doing collecting. They will pick up bags of nonperishable food items throughout the morning.
Some of the most highly needed items are:
Non-perishable food items
Canned protein (tuna, salmon, chicken, peanut butter)
Soups & stews (beef stew, chili, meat-based soups)
100% fruit juices (all sizes)
Grains (pasta, whole grain pasta, rice, brown rice, boxed macaroni & cheese)
Cereals (multi grain, low sugar such as cheerios, cornflakes, raisin bran, grape nuts, oatmeal)
Hygiene products (diapers, toilet paper, tissues, soap, toothpaste)
Most troops will begin collecting at 9 am.
