Scouting For Food

2023 Scouting For Food

What is Scouting for Food?
The purpose of Scouting for Food is to allow all Scouts and Scouters the opportunity to do a Council-wide Good Turn for the community. Scouting for Food gives each Cub Scout, Scouts BSA, and Explorer/Venturer a sense of community and citizenship.  Every year Scouts from all over the country participate in this project tofeed the hungry. Hunger is an unacceptable issue that the Boy Scouts of America has taken on as a challenge to fight. We as leaders must do all we can to pass onto our Scouts an attitude of service in fighting this dreaded problem. In our service area, 1 in 7 people struggle with hunger.

When is Scouting for Food?

The event takes place on Saturday, November 11, 2023 and Saturday, November 18, 2023.

On November 11, you and your fellow Scouts will distribute the Scouting for Food flyers, letting your community know that you will be back on November 18, to collect bags of food that they are willing to donate. Take your donations to your district collection site, your chartered organization’s food pantry or any Dare to Care food bank.
