Scouting For Food
When: February 7th and 14th
Scouting for Food is the largest single-day food collection event in Dallas and one of the largest in the nation! On one day, approximately 30,000 Scouts, go door-to-door collecting non-perishable food items for the less fortunate. The food is then distributed to local food pantries and assistance agencies across Circle Ten Council.
This year’s Scouting for Food Drive is scheduled for February 7th and 14th. Local Boy Scout Troops will be collecting our bags of food at the Tom Thumb at Legacy & Coit on Feb. 15th, probably from about 10am to 2pm (exact times TBD). Den Leaders will be sending out information on meeting points and copies of maps. This activity takes 1-2 hours. Adult volunteers are needed to accompany scouts door-to-door, and pull wagons with the collected food (or drive a car). Please contact your Den Leader if you can assist.
