Scouting for Food 2020
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. Scouting for Food is a food-collection drive where Scouts get out into their neighborhoods and collect food items to be delivered to families in need. It’s another reminder to our local communities that Scouts are here, doing good turns.
Between the dates of January 25, 2020 and January 30, 2020 Scouts distribute door hangers to local homes in their community to let them know about the drive.
On February 1, 2020 starting at 9am, Scouts will revisit those houses to pick up bags full of canned food, cereal, pasta, peanut butter, juice and other nonperishable items. The food is then delivered to food banks across the district. Please choose a food bank that is listed below.
Door hangers will be available in early January to pick up from each District's Leadership. Door Hanger Pick-up Dates:
Friday 1/10/2020 12pm-2pm
Monday 1/13/2020 4pm-6pm
Tuesday 1/14/2020 12pm-2pm
Thursday 1/16/2020 10am-6pm
Friday 1/24/2020 10am-12pm
Emails will be sent out to registered Units once door hangers are available for pick-up.
Each Unit should plan to have at least 20% Youth Participation.
Each Youth should plan to to canvass at least 20 homes.
Each Unit should record the weight (in pounds) of food collected. (Weigh food on a scale or estimate how much was collected).
Please record what houses are visited with the Door Hangers to ensure every home is revisited to collect food on Saturday, February 1, 2020.
After each Unit delivers food to a local food bank, click here to record Unin and individual Scout participation. This is required to earn the Scout for Food Patch!
