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.
