Scouting for Food

As Scouts, we know how fortunate we are to have a warm meal every night — whether around the campfire or at the kitchen table. And we know that not everyone is so lucky. 

That’s the genesis of Scouting for Food, the annual food-collection drive run by our local council, Circle Ten. It’s another reminder to our local communities that Scouts are here, doing good turns. 

Circle Ten sets the date of Scouting for Food sometime in April. Scouting for Food takes place on two consecutive weekends. On the first weekend, Scouts distribute bags and/or door hangers to let their neighbors know about the drive. On the second, Scouts revisit those houses to pick up bags full of canned food, cereal, pasta, peanut butter, juice and other nonperishable items. The food is delivered to needy families all throughout the council’s borders
