Scouting for Food is an ongoing annual program of the Boy Scouts of America begun in 1985 by the Greater Saint Louis Area Council that collects food for local food banks. It is organized at the local level throughout the country.

Scouting for Food is a project rooted in the very foundation of the Scouting movement and its dedication to do an implement the Scout Slogan and do good turn daily.

Background

Each year, local Cub and Boy Scouts leave plastic bags for their neighbors soliciting canned food items. One week later, the Scouts return to pick up and deliver the bags of food to a local food bank. Or the Boy/Cub Scouts will stand outside major food retailers (with permission) soliciting donations from shoppers. The donations will usually be delivered directly to the local food bank that day.
