Scouting for Food

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 earn a participation patch and the satisfaction of helping those in need.

Intent to Participate - please email SFF Chair
