SIKESTON -- This weekend Sikeston area Boy and Cub Scouts will complete the first of two parts of the nation's largest food drive, "Scouting for Food."

The annual community service campaign, now in its 28th year, will begin on Saturday, when Boy Scouts will fasten bags to the front doors of homes in Sikeston neighborhoods and those in other towns. On Nov. 17, Scouts will return to the neighborhoods to pick up donated food items from residents' front porches.
