Scouting for Food is back for another year to help those in need.

On Saturday, Oct. 29, local Boy Scouts of America will be out delivering door hangers seeking donations of nonperishable food items. Then, they’ll return a week later on Saturday, Nov. 5, to collect the donations which will be brought to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.

Donations can also be dropped off at sites around Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and food can be purchased online through the food bank’s website.

Each year, Scouts in our community collect as much as 200,000 pounds of food for our neighbors from generous Rhode Islanders through their annual Scouting for Food Drive.
