Scouting for Food

Posted on Monday, November 4, 2013 at 8:50 am

Scouting for Food is the largest one-day food drive in the Boy Scouts of America. Started in 1985 here in the St. Louis area, Scouting for Food has expanded to other councils across the country. Did you know more than 43 million items have been collected since 1985. Each year, our Scouts, leaders, and parents collect approximately two million items that serve approximately 500 pantries within the Greater St. Louis Area Council, which includes the St. Louis metropolitan area, southeastern Missouri, and southern Illinois. This annual collection meets a four-month demand for food.

Bag distribution day will be November 9 and bag pick up day will be November 16. If you have any questions or if you do not get a bag please call 636-734-0543 for more information.
