Scouting For Food

We will be distributing door hangers for the annual “Scouting for Food” drive on Saturday, April 5th at 9:00am. We will meet in the Willowdale parking lot and receive a route map and door hangers. Class A uniforms are required.

For those of you who have never participated in Scouting for Food, it is an annual food drive conducted by the Mid-America Council in partnership with ConAgra Foods and the Food Bank for the Heartland. Our Pack will distribute door hangers with information on the food drive to 1,000 homes in the Willowdale/Lake Zorinsky area.


The following Saturday, April 12th, we will return (again meeting at Willowdale at 9:00 a.m.) to retrieve donations of nonperishable food items and deliver them back to Willowdale, so please mark that date on your calendars as well.  Participating scouts will receive a patch for their involvement!


The more people we have helping, the quicker we will get the door hangers distributed, so please plan on attending!  If you can’t make it that morning, but would like to distribute door hangers some other time that weekend,  contact Mr. Pleiss and he can make arrangements with you.
