This Saturday, November 6th, you may see Scouts of all ages – from Brownies, Daisies and Cubs all the way up to high school Girl and Boy Scouts – crisscrossing Wellesley delivering plastic Roche Brothers bags to every single family residence in town. They are all “Scouting for Food” for the Wellesley Food Pantry, joining 3 millions other scouts across America in supporting local food pantries. The “Scouting for Food” drive is the single biggest source of donated food to the Wellesley Food Pantry each year, and the need is great – almost 200 Wellesley families are currently registered users of the Food Pantry.
So when you see a plastic bag with a Food Pantry “wish list” flyer inside hanging from your door, please be as generous as you can and fill that bag with food (unexpired, no glass, no perishables) and put it outside your house before 9 AM on November 13th. The Wellesley Scout who dropped off the bag will be back that day to take your food to the Pantry. If you don’t receive a bag, the Food Pantry will also gladly accept donations to their box at Roche Brothers on Linden Street. Questions? Please check out the Scouting for Food website at http://troop185wellesley.org/ScoutingForFood/ or call the Food Pantry at 781-235-1188.
Thanks in advance for your generosity!
