Scouting for Food


Thank you for supporting this year’s Scouting for Food Drive. Our volunteers went above and beyond this year, collecting your food donations in the pouring rain.

Dropping Off Food

If the Boy Scouts were not able to cover your neighborhood, please visit your local food pantry or the RI Community Food Bank. Food can also be dropped off at one of our two Scout Shops:

West Bay Scout Shop at 1276 Bald Hill Rd, Warwick RI
East Bay Scout Shop at 79 Swansea Mall Dr., Swansea MA

Making A Donation

If you can’t drop off food, please consider making a financial donation to the RI Community Food Bank. Your gift will help us acquire food to feed our neighbors in need.
