Pack 901 participates each March in the Scouting for Food program.
For 2015, we will drop off notices on Saturday, March 7th & pick up food on Saturday, March 14th.
Scouting For Food is an annual food drive conducted by the BSA. Scoutsgo around and drop off notices informing people of the drive oneweek. Then, they return the next week and pick up any donated food& deliver that food to a local food pantry that serves our immediate neighborhood.
This food serves our local community. All the food that isdonated, is given to a pantry less than a half mile away!
