Over 210 crates of food were collected and donated to Neighbor to Neighbor at this year’s Greenwich “Scouting for Food” Drive. Above, Pack 10 Cub Scout Daulton Kendall and Fred Camillo help out.

Neighbor to Neighbor’s food pantry received more than 210 crates of food thanks to the hard work of the Greenwich Cub and Boy Scouts from a food drive they held on March 1.

The drive was made possible by State Rep. Fred Camillo (R-151) who worked with the Scouts to put all this together and the people throughout Greenwich who donated.

According to the Greenwich Scout Council, the annual Scouting for Food drive was an “overwhelming success,” doubling the crates of food brought in last year. Much of the donated food came from local grocery stores that hosted Scouts, in particular the Greenwich and Glenville Stop & Shops, Riverside A&P Fresh and Kings in Old Greenwich.

Collection locations were provided by the Glenville Vol. Fire Company, Cos Cob Vol. Fire Co., Sound Beach Vol. Fire Dept. and Christ Church.

“We are so grateful for all the work the Scouts do to keep our food pantry shelves stocked,” said Neighbor to Neighbor Executive Director Nancy Coughlin, in a press release. “We provide food every week to over 1,000 Greenwich residents, and we could not meet this very real community need without their help.”
