This is BSA’s national campaign to collect food for our local food banks and make a difference in our community! Food banks are typically at their lowest levels this month and this is a fun and simple way we can help out! We are mixing things up a bit and having our Scouting for Food event one week later than the national event so that we do not compete with Girl Scout cookie sales.
Scouts sign up for a one hour time slot between 11am and 2pm at the Red Apple Market. We need four uniformed scouts and two parent supervisors for each hour split between the two doors. We hand out shopping lists to shoppers as they enter the store and then collect the food that they purchase. It is a great opportunity for scouts to share their enthusiasm for scouting and practice politely asking for donations. The last group of the day helps pack up the food collected, gets to purchase food with any cash donations and then it is all taken to HopeLink.
