2017 Scouting for Food

 

 
All Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troop, and Venture Crews are asked to participate in the Scouting for Food Drive in 2017. This food drive is designed to help support the local food pantries in the 21 counties of the Great Smoky Mountain Council.  Each district will coordinate food bag distribution and collection through their Scouting for Food Chairperson or their District Committee representatives.
 
Through a generous donation, there will be printed door hangers provided to each unit. Door hangers will be distributed to each district and should be given out at the January Roundtable meeting. We ask that each scout visit homes in a selected community and distribute door hangers to them. The scout will then return the next Saturday to collect the food bags.  Each scout should be in uniform and use the buddy system when visiting homes in his neighborhood.
 
Door hanger distribution is scheduled for Saturday, January 28, 2017. Bag pickup and food collection will be on Saturday, February 4, 2017 from 8:00am to 2:00pm. Collection items can be delivered to the local food pantry, the Scout Service Center in Knoxville, your local Food City Store or one of the collection centers in and around your local community or church.  
 
Be sure to fill out the tally sheet for Scouts participating and items collected and return it to the Scout Service Center no later than Friday, February 17, 2017.
