Scouting for Food - Please put your donations out on Saturday November 2

Food is low, and we need your help.

Scouting for food is the Food Pantry's largest annual food drive. Thanks to the generous donations of Northborough residents and the Scouts, food collected on this one day feeds families who use our pantry throughout the winter and early spring.

Scouting for Food will take place Saturday November 2nd in Northborough. Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Venture Scouts will go door to door to collect food for the Northborough Food Pantry.

This year Scouts are "going green" and will not distribute plastic bags the week before, instead they will leave door hangers reminding residents about the food drive. Northborough residents are reminded to put their donations out by 9 am on Saturday November 2.
