Once a year Scouting units across the region come together to perform the same service on the same day.
In 2015 this resulted in almost 500,000 pounds of non-perishable food being collected for local pantries. We hope to collect even more in 2016!
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.
