Scouting For Food

“Scouting for Food” is Scouting’s community stewardship project aimed at addressing the problem of hunger in the community in which we live and work.Scouting for Food is a food collection effort carried out by Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturers from your community. These Food drives are organized by yourDistrict’s Activities andCivic Service Committee and it is expected that all units and Scouts participate in this annual service project.
Scouts distribute food drive donation requests (flyers) throughout a designated area and then return the next week to collect plastic grocery bags filled with donated food. The bags are collected and carried to local food pantries, churches, shelters for the homeless, and other local agencies that feed the needy.
Scouting for Food is a project rooted in the very foundation of the Scouting movement. Through initiative and hard work, the Boy Scouts have developed a framework that can help local food pantries feed tens of thousands of needy local residents with emergency aid.
