Scouting for Food community service project successfully helps local food pantries

The Black Swamp Area Council’s annual Scouting for Food community service project in our 13-county service area was successful in March.

Each March, many area Scouts participate during the annual food and non-perishable drive to collect items for communities in the local council service area which includes Allen, Auglaize, Defiance, Fulton, Hancock, Hardin, Henry, Mercer, Putnam, Paulding, Seneca, Van Wert, and Williams counties.

With 135 Scout groups in Black Swamp Area Council, there was on average 785 pounds collected by Scout groups, which resulted in an average of 66 hours of community service by each.

If you have any non-perishable items you would like to donate, please contact your local food pantry.

Additionally, several area Scout groups will conduct their food drives in November leading up to Thanksgiving.

In 2020, Black Swamp Area Council Scout Troops, Packs, Crews and Post reported nearly 6,700 hours of community service.
