GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts will participate in the “Scouting for Food” drive from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 7.
The scouts, under the leadership of Rep. Fred Camillo, will collect food from residents to benefit Neighbor to Neighbor.
Food donations may be brought to any of four drop-off locations: Glenville Volunteer Fire Company (266 Glenville Road), Cos Cob Volunteer Fire Company (200 East Putnam Ave.), Sound Beach Volunteer Fire Department (207 Sound Beach Ave.) and Christ Church’s Parish Hall Auditorium (254 E. Putnam Ave.).
Greenwich residents are encouraged to drop off non-expired items such as canned beans (not green), canned fruit, tuna, boxed milk, pasta sauce, jelly, peanut butter and more. All donated food will be sorted, then delivered by Scouts to Neighbor to Neighbor, with the goal of surpassing the 2014 collection of more than 220 crates of food.
Neighbor to Neighbor provides nutritious meals monthly for more than 650 local families through the Client Choice food pantry, giving clients the opportunity to do their own shopping at the food pantry. Nearly half of the food provided by Neighbor to Neighbor feeds children.
