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.

A Cub Scout promises to “give good will” and a Boy Scout promises “to help other people at all times.” The best way to show our Scouting Spirit is by participating in the annual Scouting for Food drive. There are thousands of needy families in the DFW area, and numbers are growing rapidly… especially with today’s economy.
Our goal is 100% participation from all packs, troops and crews in this most important outreach to our communities. Last year we collected 13,572 non-perishable items (canned food, pasta, cereal, peanut butter, etc.) and this year we can top that total. In fact, we are proud to note that Scouting for Food accounts for the single largest donation received by local food banks each year.
Donations go to a local food pantry.
We need you! Pack 112 is in need of a Scouting for Food Chair to help lead this important event for our Pack! Contact Jill Torres or Shannon Haynes and let them know you’re interested!
