Support Your Local Boy Scouts and the High Plains Food Bank By Participating in Scouting For Food

The Golden Spread Council of the Boy Scouts take part in an event each March to help out the High Plains Food Bank.  The event is called Scouting for Food.   They need your help to make this happen.

Coming up on Saturday, March 25th all you have to do is before you go to bed or when you get up on Saturday morning, just leave a bag full of non-perishable food items on your doorstep or by your mailbox. Boy Scout Troops in your neighborhood will begin picking up these food items on Saturday morning around 8am.  You might even get a reminder notice a few days before on your door.

Once they have finished collecting the food it will be delivered to the High Plains Food Bank.

Food Items you can donate are:

  • Canned Vegetables
  • Canned Fruit
  • Canned proteins
  • Bagged rice
  • Bagged beans
  • Boxed Dinners
  • Peanut Butter

Please no frozen foods or glass containers

Last year the Boy Scout troops collected over 9,000 pounds of food.  So help them make this year a record breaking year.

If you do not have a Boy Scout come by your house, you can drop your donations off at United Supermarket, 5807 W. 45th, Amigos at 3300 I-40 E, or the High Plains Food Bank at 815 S. Ross.
This is a great way to help the Boy Scouts with their community service while helping feed the hungry in the Texas Panhandle.
