Members of the Boys Scouts of America organizations in Barton County will be “Scouting for Food” this Saturday, Nov. 14. The public is asked to help by donating nonperishable food items to local food banks. Items can be donated from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. that day by leaving them in designated area at local grocery stores.
