Scouting for Food

In the Law of the Pack, a cub scout gives good will and in the Boy Scout Promise, a boy scout promises to help other people at all times.   By participating in a Scouting for Food program, scouts come a step closer to fulfilling those words.

Across the country, in many councils and districts, thousands of troops and packs with millions of scouts involved collect tens of millions of pounds of food which is distributed to needy neighbors. If your troop or pack is not involved in a local program, or if there is not a program in place, this is a great opportunity for you to help improve your scouting program.

The first step in getting your unit involved in a food drive is to find a Scouting For Food Chairman - someone that will organize and promote the project and be a liaison between your unit and district. Once that person is identified, it is easy to plug into an existing district or council program. If you want to start up a new program, the following is how it usually works:

General guidelines for organizing your unit's Scouting for Food program:

For a smooth running food collection program, remember these tips:

Whether on a distribution team, collection team, or clean up team, each time commitment will be about 2 hours. This is a great excuse to get out and hike a couple miles while performing service to the local community. Your scouts will be amazed at how much food they will collect if this is a new event for your unit. It is a tangible example of the generousity of people in your town.
