On Saturday, March 16, 2013, over 25,000 youth– Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venture Crews will distribute collection bags for non-perishable food items & other grocery store non food items among the homes of residents throughout the Kenosha and Racine Counties, Milwaukee & suburbs. Food bags will be hung on the front doors handles of homes
On Saturday, March 23, 2013, Scouts will collect the food bags from the front porches of residents’ homes. The collection will begin at 9:00 a.m. and will end at 12:00 noon. In addition, there will be Scouts accepting donations of non-perishable food items outside several major grocery stores throughout our area. The collected food items will then be delivered to these food pantries that serve the needy. These pantries are for Kenosha and Racine Counties only. Our goal is to collect well over 250,000 items. If the bag left on your doorstep is mistakenly not picked up it can be dropped off directly to a pantry listed below, meanwhile the Milwaukee area Districts deliver their food to Feeding America.
