Scouting for Food Collection
This is the 27th year for Scouting for Food in which Scouts have collected food for the hungry in our council. Once again we will partner with Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, Racine County Food Bank, Shalom Center of Kenosha 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 provide barrels in the Pick 'n Save Stores to collect food in areas in which we don’t have a Scout unit to cover. As a leader, take this opportunity to teach our youth members what it means to “Help other people at all times” by participating in this community wide good turn.
