Scouting for Food Returns with Great Generosity

The annual Scouting for Food Program returned this November after being canceled in the area last year due to the pandemic. Scouting for Food is a national event of the Boy Scouts of America and is one of several service projects local scouts participate in each year. On the weekend of November 6 scouts from Troop 1033 put fliers on the front doors of many houses in the Beltsville and Calverton neighborhoods. On Saturday, November 13th, the scouts went back through the neighborhoods and collect food donations from front porches. Due to the overwhelming generosity of so many local residences, the scouts collected over 3,500 pounds of food donations. The scouts gathered at St. Joseph’s Church parking lot later that morning to weigh, sort, and check the expiration dates of the non-perishable items. The food was then distributed to the food pantries at St. Joseph´s Church and Emmanuel Methodist Church to help those in need in the area. The scouts would like to thank all the generous supporters who made this year’s Scouting for Food a great success.
