2016 Scouting For Food Dates Announced



This year Scouting for Food will take place on the first two weekends of November.

November 5:  Scouts canvas their neighborhoods with door hangers.  These door hangers explain Scouting for Food’s purpose and ask households to place a bag of non-perishable food items by their doors the following Saturday for pick up.

November 12:  Pick Up Day!  Scouts return to the houses they left door hangers with the previous week and pick up the bags of food.  They take the food to a drop off point where it’s weighed and added to others.  At the end of the day the units distribute the food to local pantries and food banks.
