Local Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, and Venturing crews throughout the Patriots’ Path Council, Boy Scouts of America, are conducting food drives to help feed the hungry in the days leading up to the holidays.  Scouts from local towns in Sussex, Morris, Somerset, Union, and Middlesex, counties will be collecting food to help the hungry in our communities.  All food collected will be brought to local food pantries chosen by the Scouts.

Items needed include: canned meats / fish, fruit juice, soups, baby formula, jello, pudding mix, pasta, sauces, canned fruit and vegetables, baby cereal, powdered milk, peanut butter, hot or cold cereal.  No outdated or opened items, please.

This food collection is part of Scouting For Food, an effort by Cub Scout packs and Boy Scout troops around our nation to fight hunger.
