Scouting for Food Helps Stop Hunger

Scouting for Food is the Boy Scouts of America’s nationwide service project to help stop hunger in our communities. It began as a Scout’s service project in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1985, and was adopted by the Boy Scout National Organization in 1988.

You are welcome to host a Scouting for Food Drive at any point during the year. This is an impactful service project that helps our communities. Please contact your district community service chair for more information on how to run a drive.

Please note that Scouting for Food plastic bags will not be available. As environmental initiatives are being implemented in our state to reduce single use plastic bags, our provider is no longer able to donate Scouting-branded Scouting for Food bags.

Your unit should plan on distributing flyers to promote the food drive. If you have any questions, reach out to your district community service chair or Linda Cummings at [email protected] for more information.
