Scouting For Food 2020

Door Hanger Distribution -- November 7, 2020
Food Collection Day -- November 14, 2020

SCOUTS- NEW for 2020- The doorknob hangers will have a special blank space for you to fill out personal information for your unit if you choose to modify your collection due to COVID. Some ideas include having a Drive-Thru where people drive up and you remove the bag safely from the trunk, having a local pick up site for the entire week like a community building or business, or picking up during a longer time frame during the day to allow 'shifts' for Scouts to practice social distancing. Please remember to contact your local food bank first to ensure you follow their safety precautions as well. 

It is also helpful to have your direct phone number on the hangers incase a bag is missed and the individuals can contact you directly to arrange pickup. Remember every bag increases your recorded pounds of food!

Scouting for Food is the largest one-day food drive in the Boy Scouts of America. Started here in Minsi Trails Council in 1986, Scouting for Food has collected more than 3.25 million pounds of food for area food banks. Each year, our Scouts, leaders, and parents collect approximately 200,000 pounds of food.

The Scouting for Food effort is important since many area food banks are experiencing significant food shortages this year . Nearly 40 percent of food bank donations go to help feed hungry children, so the Scout food drive is in large part about kids feeding kids .  All local food donations stay in our local communities to help support area food pantries.
