Scouting for Food aims to nourish area’s hungry with Scouting's 26th Annual Food Drive
Event: Scouting for Food is an annual food collection orchestrated by Scouts of the National Capital Area Council. Area Scouts distribute plastic bags to homes across the region and return to pick up the bags, now filled with food, one week later. Collected food is distributed to needy families throughout the communities of the Council.
Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, and Venturing crews and Sea Scout ships throughout the National Capital Area Council will be distributing Scouting for Food donation bags in local neighborhoods on Saturday, November 3.
Participants: National Capital Area Council Boy Scout Troops, Cub Scout Packs and Venture Crews
Most Wanted Items:
Non-perishable Food Items
Canned Protein (tuna, salmon, chicken, peanut butter)
