Throughout the world and right here at home there are people going hungry. Here in Northeast Mississippi, food pantries are in vital need of more food items to try and meet the demand of people in need. The Boy Scouts of America at our partners at Food For Families are asking you for help.

The dates for this year's Scouting for Food drive are November 1st through December 13th.  Scouts across the community will be taking part in a variety of food drives so be on the look out.  You can see a list of Scouting for Food activities below.
