Scouting For Food

Boy Scouts of America
#GECScouting4Food

Scouting for Food is a nationwide Boy Scouts of America community service project in which Scouts canvas their local communities collecting food for their local food pantries. All Units, Scouts, leaders, parents, siblings, family members, and friends in the Golden Empire Council are invited to help! Scouts obtain satisfaction and demonstrate how they may serve others by providing a valuable and needed service to the less fortunate in their communities.


Please click here to sign up your unit to participate in this event no later than December 15, 2018.
