What is Scouting for Food?

Scouting for Food is a council-wide service project to care for people in our local communities who are hungry and those in need. The project begins Saturday, November 5, 2022, as Scouts distribute bags in their neighborhoods to announce the upcoming food drive. Scouts return the following Saturday, November 12, 2022, to pick up and deliver donations to their local food banks and pantries. If another weekend in November works for your scout units, please coordinate with your District Executive.
A Scout promises to help other people at all times. There is no better way to show our Scouting spirit than by participating in the annual Scouting for Food drive! Now is the time to show our community the Scouting values of being loyal, helpful, kind and cheerful.
Scouts will help make a difference to fight hunger. Scouting for Food is the leading service program for Boy Scouts of America.
