Scouting for Food is an ongoing annual program of the Boy Scouts of America whereby food is collected 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. 

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. The donations will be delivered directly to the local food bank that day.
