Scouts to Go Door-to-Door for Food Drive Tomorrow

Scouting for Food logoEven though trick-or-treating is over, you may still see some kids in costumes uniforms come to your door tomorrow, seeking food with bags in hand.

Saturday is the Boy Scouts’ annual “Scouting for Food” drive in the D.C. area, and Boy Scouts will be tying plastic bags to the doors of Arlington houses tomorrow. The following Saturday, Nov. 9, they will return to collect the bag, which they hope the residents will fill with nonperishable food items.

Last year, the drive collected 825,000 pounds of food, according to the National Capital Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

Once the bags are collected, the food collected in Arlington will be distributed by the Arlington Food Assistance Center. Boy Scouts will also be at Safeway grocery stores Nov. 9 encouraging shoppers to buy additional items to be donated to AFAC.
