Scouting for Food 2019 Signup

Hello Everyone!

Below is the sign-up link for the Scouting for Food event. There are two weekend dates available to sign-up and each day is anticipated to take about 2 hours or so to complete. I would encourage any families able to attend and assist with one of the weekends. This is a great opportunity for the scouts to earn their public service requirement of their Council Fire loop. The flyer and informational packet is attached. This is my first year participating in the event so I'll do my best to answer any questions. The format is a bit changed this year with the door hangers instead of the plastic bags. In previous years, the scouts distributed plastic bags with instructions affixed to them. Apparently last year many of the bags blew away in the wind. This year the scouts will be placing door hangers with instructions and those contributing food will use their own plastic bags. 

Update: (March 23) The Pack and Troop together collected 1400 pounds of food.  Thank you Pack and Tropp 719 for your service to our neighbors in need of food.
