Scouting For Food | Monroe County
November 18, 2017 @ 6:00 am - 5:00 pm
The annual Scouting For Food drive takes place this Saturday, Nov. 18, with local scouts collecting bags of food items on the front doors.
Residents are encouraged to donate food items and place them outside of homes. Scouts will begin picking up the items at 10 a.m. that day.
In Columbia, collected food items are brought to the Scout Hut at Metter Park for sorting.
In Waterloo, the items are brought to the Western Egyptian Food Pantry at 207 W. Fourth Street for sorting.
Scouting for Food is the largest single-day community food drive in the Boy Scouts of America. Started in 1985 by the Greater St. Louis Area Council, Scouting for Food has expanded to other councils across the country.
More than 30,000 Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturers annually help the needy as they collect approximately 2 million cans of food during the drive.
