Scouting for Food

  • Bag Distribution: Saturday, March 11, 2017
  • Bag Pickup: Saturday, March 18, 2017
The annual Scouting for Food campaign will partner with the Sharing Center of Trevor and other local food pantries in Racine and Kenosha Counties who will distribute the collected food to those in need at no cost. Roundy’s will provide the bags and offer barrels in the Pick ‘n Save Stores to collect food in areas in which they don’t have a Scout unit to cover.
This will mark the 29th year in which Scouts have collected food for the hungry in our council. To date, over 6 million pounds of food have been collected. Open to Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Explorers.
