“Scouting for Food,” is Scouting’s community stewardship project aimed at addressing the problem of hunger in the community in which we live and work.
On Saturday, November 10, 2012, hundreds of Boy Scouts, Venturers, and Cub Scouts went door-to-door collecting bags filled with nonperishable food donations.
The donations have been coming through the door at Gleaners' Distribution centers. So far, just over 170,000 pounds have been delivered! That's enough to provide 127,500 hungry neighbors with a solid meal.
Scouting For Food is a huge initiative involving 5 counties and hundres of Scouts. With a project this big, we occasionally miss a food pick up. We apologize if your food was not picked up but hope you will take the time to drop off your donation to one of these locations:
Thank you for helping to feed our hungry neighbors!
If your community did not participate in Scouting for Food, you can also make a financial donation to help us provide food for our hungry neighbors. Every dollar equals 3 meals!
Anyone can host a Food & Fund Drive. Each drive can be custom-made to fit your organization’s abilities, whether you’re a large corporation, school, small church group or private family.

Are you planning an event to help in the fight against hunger? Tell us about it and we will post it on our website!
Did you take photographs during your last food drive for Gleaners? We would love for you to share them with us on Flickr!
