'Scouting For Food' Holiday Food Drive to Collect Donations This Weekend

Posted: Updated:

Local Boy Scouts Pack, Troop 7322 and Girl Scouts Troop 89 are teaming up this holiday season for the 40th annual “Scouting for Food” holiday food drive.

Both groups will be collecting food donations for St. Vincent’s Food Pantry on Saturday and Sunday outside St. Albert the Great Catholic Church, located at 1250 Wyoming Avenue in Reno.

Donations will be collected before masses. Saturday, masses will be held at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Sunday, masses will be held at 8 a.m., 10 a.m., and 5 p.m.

They are asking for donations like canned yams, cranberry sauce, turkey gravy, pie mix, custard and frozen turkeys.

Last year, the Scouts collected more than 3,000 pounds of food, which is enough to provide 3,600 meals to local community members in need.

The St. Vincent’s Food Pantry serves an average of 12,000 people each month by providing them with a pre-packaged food box containing non-perishable food items to supplement their home food supply.
