Scouts from the Pelathe District will begin their annual Scouting for Food Drive on Saturday.
Scouts will be placing notices and bags at the front doors of residences throughout Lawrence through April 1. Residents will be asked to fill the bags with canned and nonperishable food items and place them on their porches before 9 a.m. April 8 for pickup.
The food will be donated to The Salvation Army, community food pantries, social service agencies and churches. A similar drive is planned in Eudora, where collections will be given to the Eudora Ministerial Alliance food pantry.
