Boy Scouts will be collecting food donations door-to-door Saturday morning, Nov. 12, to replenish food banks in the Annandale area.
Scouting for Food is sponsored by the National Capital Area Council. Members of local Scout troops distributed plastic bags last week for local residents to fill with non-perishable groceries for needy families.
These items are most in need: canned protein (tuna, salmon, chicken, peanut butter); soups and stews (beef stew, chili, meat-based soups); 100 percent fruit juices (all sizes); grains (pasta, whole grain pasta, rice, brown rice, boxed macaroni and cheese); cereals (multi-grain, low-sugar varieties, such as Cheerios, cornflakes, Raisin Bran, Grape Nuts, oatmeal); canned vegetables; canned fruits; and condiments.
Hygiene products (diapers, toilet paper, tissues, soap, and toothpaste) are also in demand.
