October - time for Scouting for Food. Started in 1986, this year marks the 27th year for the annual Boy Scout food drive. Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts will distribute flyers to residences throughout Wood County during the week of October 13th. Please note that the Perrysburg and Rossford areas conduct Scouting for Food in the spring.
Starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19, Scouts will return to pick up donated food items. Residents should use their own bag(s) and place items by a front or side door visible from the street. All donated items will be delivered directly to local Wood County food pantries.
Suggested items include: peanut butter; canned soups/stews, fruits, vegetables, meat and tuna; cereal; crackers; dried beans; ramen noodles and dried pasta; macaroni and cheese; and 100% fruit juice. Food in glass jars, baby food, open boxes and outdated items are not accepted.
If you received a flyer and your donation has not been picked up by noon, call the number shown on the flyer. In Bowling Green, if you did not receive a flyer and want to support Scouting for Food, please drop off items at the Bowling Green Christian Food Pantry, 541 W. Wooster St. (rear) between 10 a.m. and noon.
Wood County residents are known for their generosity! If every household that receives a flyer donated one item, the total number of items collected would surpass 10,000. Please help local Scouts fill pantry shelves prior to the holiday season!
