Boy Scouts On Saturday Will Drop Off Food Bags

Food City and the Sequoyah Council, Boy Scouts of America, will again go door-to-door Saturday as part of the annual Scouting for Food good turn project.

This will mark the 25th consecutive year for the food drive, which helps more than 50 food agencies.

Thousands of Scouts and volunteer leaders will canvass neighborhoods on Saturday throughout Greene County and other areas of Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee, leaving bags on doors.

The bags have instructions and suggested food items to be donated.

The project, one of the largest food drives in the region, collects more than 200,000 cans of food annually, local Boy Scouts official Alan Corley said.

The Scouts will return on Saturday, Nov. 17, to collect the food.

The donated food items will be taken to collection centers where it will be sorted, boxed and turned over the local food distribution agencies. Anyone not receiving a bag may donate at their local Food City location.

Food City supplies more than 150,000 bags used in the project, in addition to physical and financial support, Corley said.

Food City has sponsored the project since its inception in 1988. During that time more than 4.9 million cans of food have been collected to feed the hungry.

"This project works because it is people helping people," said Ronald Cameron, Program Director for the Sequoyah Council, in a news release.

The Sequoyah Council serves 16 counties in Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee.
