Scouting for Food 2023 day 1
We suggest alternate ways to collect donations and keep Scouts and volunteers safe and healthy. Some ideas are:
- Set up a contactless, drive thru drop off location where Scouts and volunteers receive donations by removing bags from the trunk or rear hatch of vehicles
- Create drop off bins on Scout front lawns or in stores other than grocery stores that already have them
- Drive by pickup: ask donors to leave bags at the end of their driveway and Scouts will grab with no contact with donors
We have created a guidance document that will speak specifically to Scouting For Food.
We have provided a doorhanger and flyer template that can be edited with your unit drive information.
A Cub Scout promises to give goodwill, a Scouts promises to help other people at all times, and a Venturer promises to help others. There is no better way to show your Scouting spirit than by participating in the annual Scouting for Food drive! Now is the time to show your community the Scouting values of being loyal, helpful, kind and cheerful.
Scouting for Food is when you and over 10,000+ other Scouts throughout the Mayflower Council, BSA help make a difference to fight hunger. This council-wide service project begins Saturday, November 4th, as Scouts distribute flyers or bags in their neighborhoods to announce the upcoming food drive. Scouts return the following Saturday, November 11th, to pick up and deliver donations to their local food banks and pantries.
How can you help make a difference? Talk to your Scoutmaster, Cubmaster, Crew Advisor, or Den Leader today and let them know you want to help make a difference.
