We are fortunate to have a warm meal every night — And we know that not everyone is so lucky.
That’s the genesis of Scouting for Food, the annual food-collection drive run by your local Scouts each March, when our food pantry is at its lowest. It’s another reminder to our local communities that Scouts are here, doing good turns.
Scouting for Food takes place on two consecutive weekends. On the first weekend, March 2nd, Scouts distribute bags and/or door hangers to let their neighbors know about the drive. On the second, March 9th, Scouts revisit those houses to pick up bags full of canned food, cereal, pasta, peanut butter, juice and other nonperishable items. The food will be delivered to the Vernon Township Food pantry to distribute to needy families all throughout the area.
If you receive a tag on your door, please consider putting out a bag of food. If you do not receive a tag, you can still participate! Drop off a donation at the Vernon Area Food Pantry - 3050 N Main St, Buffalo Grove, IL 60089. More information on the pantry @ https://www.vernontownship.com/157/Food-Pantry-Mobile-Food-Pantry
