It’s time for the annual Scouting for Food drive to support the Southborough Food Pantry.

This weekend, you’ll be seeing scouts of all types around town, hanging bags with flyers.* The following Saturday, November 4th, they’ll be back in your neighborhood hoping to gather a bounty for the pantry.

Here are more details:

Scouting for Food

Saturday, October 28th marks the beginning of Southborough’s Annual Scouting for Food drive. Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts all over town will be hanging bags on doors to collect donations to benefit the Southborough Food Pantry.

epantryshelvesThis is the largest food drive of the entire year for the Southborough Food Pantry and is essential for keeping the shelves stocked through the winter and beyond. Last year over 10,000 lbs. of food was donated!

Making a donation is simple. Just fill the bag (or more) with contributions of food, personal care, and paper products. Leave any filled bags or boxes next to your mailbox by 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 4th, when Scouts will come and pick up your donation.

Please be sure to check expiration dates on food items, as the food pantry cannot distribute expired food.

The Southborough Food Pantry and the Scouts thank you for your support!

*Scout families looking to pick up bags and their routes should head to Pilgrim Church this Friday night (6:00 – 8:00 pm – not before) or Saturday morning (8:00 – 10:00 am). For additional details, click here for the official flyer for all scouts.
