Ripon Boy Scout Troop 735 and Cub Scout Pack 3735 will host a “Drive Thru Scouting for Food” event to support the Traded Treasures & Community Food Pantry and the Ripon Area Food Pantry.

Scouting for Food-1

Helping unload food donations are, from left, Drew Schneider, Collin Schneider, Tristan Bair, Jon Schneider and Mike Bair.

The event will take place Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the old K-mart parking lot in Ripon, where community members may bring non-perishable food goods.

This “Drive Thru Scouting for Food” event is Ripon Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts’ alternative to the annual door-to-door food pick up that local scouts have done in previous years. This will be the second year of the drive-thru format, which was a success last year.

“Support for our Ripon food pantries is even more important in these trying times and Ripon scouts are offering their support by organizing this food drive,” said Dave Schoff of Ripon Boy Scouts. “Come and support the Ripon Scouting Drive Thru Scouting for Food event with your donation on Nov. 6.”
