2024 Scouting for Food

Scouting for Food is one of the largest community service projects available, where Scouts collect items for local food shelves.

Scouting groups drop-off labeled door hangers throughout neighborhoods a few days before they plan to pick-up the food, often the last Saturday in April, then return to collect the food that Saturday and deliver to our local food shelves.

Units participating in the Scouting for Food drive should coordinate with local food shelves to determine the timing that makes the most sense for their community.  Additionally, participating units are encouraged to connect with neighboring units to discuss neighborhood coverage and collection times.  

Door hangers can be requested through the Scouting for Food page on the Northern Star Council website. They will be available for pickup at the Leadership Center once the request form has been submitted.
