Scouting for Food

Scouting for Food never takes a break!  You can scout for food all year round.  Our traditional time is the fall but you can also collect food in the spring.  When you plan your yearly calendar, please do not forget to include this very important event..

  • Deliver a bag to each home in your town, collect the bags the following weekend and donate the food to a local Food Pantry
  • Set up a date at the Supermarket and collect food from the patrons, then deliver the food to the local Food Pantry

After you are done with your collection, please fill out the Collection Form below and send it to Council to let us know how you did!
