Scouting For Food 2023
November 11 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Gleaners Community Food Bank is teaming up with the Boy Scouts of America–Great Lakes Field Service Council for its annual Scouting for Food on Saturday, November 11th.
This event is the Boy Scouts of America’s largest service project of the year. If you receive a grocery bag with Scouting for Food information printed on it on your porch, please fill that bag (and others!) with non-perishable food items and leave it on your porch Saturday, November 11th by 9am. The Scouts will be collecting food starting at 9am until 2pm in Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, and Wayne counties.
Suggested items to donate:
Gleaners is always in need of shelf-stable protein rich foods, including canned chicken, canned tuna, beans, peanut butter, and protein drinks like Boost and Ensure. Other great suggestions are hearty soups, canned veggies and fruits, cereal, and oatmeal.
**Please no glass jars**
While we work hard to make sure no food donation is missed, our volunteers do occasionally encounter unexpected circumstances that may prevent them from picking up your donation. In this event, please consider delivering your donation to a Gleaners partner pantry nearest you. Visit https://pantrynet.org/ for more information.
Thank you for your continued support!
