Saturday, November 9 was the annual Scouting for Food event in Litchfield.  Starting early on the crisp fall day, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and some Daisy Girl Scouts and their families traveled throughout town, collecting food donations.  Residents were asked to leave food out near their mail boxes and the results were spectacular!  By the end of the day, the boys had collected almost 6,000 items of food.  After counting and sorting at the Fire Station, the boys carried the boxes directly to the Litchfield Food Pantry across the street.  These items are now ready to help other residents.  It was a fun and rewarding day for the Scouts as they helped their town and learned about generosity!  Thank you so much to the town of Litchfield!
