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. This year’s “Scouting for Food” effort will benefit more than 150 pantries,kitchens and closets throughout New Hampshire.
On the last Saturday in October (October 28), Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers and their leaders will deliver Scouting for Food door hangers throughout their neighborhoods and state. On the next Saturday (November 4), Scouts will return to collect the donated non-perishable food items left outside with and take them to a convenient dropoff location within their local communities.
