Scouting for Food – set up
November 6, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
SCOUTING FOR FOOD is an annual food drive sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America. It is part of our program that emphasizes our slogan “Do a Good Turn Daily”. Since 1988, Scouts nationwide have participated in this effort. Collected food benefits food pantries throughout North and Central Alabama. Moving forward, our Council will hold the food drive annually on the 2nd Saturday in November.
- September & October:
Units register to participate at https://form.jotform.com/212634107887056
Door Hangers are available for pick up from one of our offices or at Roundtable.
- Saturday November 6th
Scouts distribute door hangers to houses in your territory / neighborhood.
Door hangers should be attached to door handles. Not in or on Mailboxes.
Keep good records of where you left door hangers and ensure you pick-up all food put out.
- Saturday November 13th
Beginning at 9:00am, return to the houses where you placed door hangers. Those wishing to participate will put their food donation out for you to collect.
After the first sweep, always do a second sweep to ensure that all the food was collected.
- Deliver the food to a local designated delivery locations where it will be weighted. Delivery locations will be set up in advance based on the location of units registered.
Record your unit’s service hours and amount of food collected. Scouts record their service hours in Scoutbook to receive credit toward rank advancement.
Youth and adults will receive a Scouting for Food participation patch and “2021” metal-pin.
Collect a new metal-pin each year you participate in the program.
Units will receive a participation ribbon for your unit flag.
