Saturday, March 4, 2023 (door fliers drop off)

Saturday, March 11, 2023 (door fliers/bags of food pick up)

Scouting for Food is a council-wide service project to care for people in our local communities who are hungry and those in need. The project begins the first Saturday in March, as Scouts distribute Scouting for Food door hangers in their neighborhoods to announce the upcoming food drive. Community members are encouraged to recycle an old grocery bag and fill it up with donated canned goods.  Scouts return the following Saturday, to pick up and deliver donations to their local food banks and pantries.

A Scout promises "to help other people at all times." There is no better way to show our Scouting Spirit than by participating in the annual Scouting for Food drive! Now is the time to show our community the Scouting values of being loyal, helpful, kind and cheerful.

Scouts will help make a difference to fight hunger. Scouting for Food is the leading service program for Boy Scouts of America and is a part of the national BSA program - Good Turn for America.
