Scouting For Food

Scouting for Food is a traditional Troop 486 Scouting event that involves the collection of food for local Food Banks. Its been a project of the Boy Scouts of America for decades. Scouts are encouraged to talk to their family, friends, relatives and neighbors about donating food to help feed the hungry. Collected food will be distributed to needy families throughout the communities of the Council. This is a wonderful, important and valuable Scouting Service Project. Each Scout that participates will earn Service Hours, which are needed as the Scout advances in rank.

Please place donations in a container or bag, with ten (10) food items in each. All donations must be turned in during the Oct 27 Troop Meeting.

  • Canned Goods (Tuna or Chicken, Fruit, Vegetables, Soups or Chili, Spaghetti or Ravioli)
