More than one million “Scouting For Food” bags were delivered last weekend. The Boy Scouts are asking residents to leave the bags filled with canned goods on their doorsteps by 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 18 for pickup.

Some recommended items for donation are canned fruits, vegetables, soups, tuna, chicken and pasta sauce, and meals in a box, such as Hamburger Helper.

Residents whose bags are missed Saturday can call 800-392-0895 in Missouri and 618-234-9111 in Illinois. Residents who did not receive a bag can take canned food donations to any Goodwill store location from Nov. 19-25. Information: sff.stlbsa.org.
