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)
Canned vegetables
Canned fruits
Condiments
Hygiene products (diapers, toilet paper, tissues, soap, toothpaste)

Most troops will begin collecting at 9 am.
