The Boy Scouts and Webelo Scouts in Cazenovia will be "Scouting for Food" on Sunday Nov. 7 when they distribute door hangers announcing the Scouting for Food drive and asking for donations of non-perishable food items and paper goods. The donations will be collected at 8:30 a.m. Saturday Nov. 13.
Scouting for Food is a National Good Turn in which Scouts across the country participate. The scouts in Cazenovia have been participating for 16 years. During that time they have collected just under 25,000 food items (right now they're eight shy, with 24,992). The scouts hope to exceed last year's collection of 1613 items and are asking the generous community of Cazenovia to make this possible. All items collected are delivered by the scouts to CazCares, the local food pantry.
Sharon Schmit is a Boy Scout Troop 18 committee member.
