Scouting for Food was a fantastic success!
Thank you so much for showing such great Scout spirit by collecting food for the neediest around us! Please help us by reporting your results in the following survey:

Scouting for Food is a nationwide Boy Scouts of America community service project in which Scouts canvas their local communities collecting food to supplement their local food pantries. All Units, Scouts, leaders, parents, siblings, family members, and friends in the Golden Empire Council are invited to help! Scouts get great satisfaction in providing a valuable and needed service to the less fortunate of their communities and demonstrate how they are here to be of service to those around them.
