Help provide 15,000 families of four with a delicious and nutritious holiday meal

According to a study commissioned by Feeding America, a nationwide association of food banks - 1 in 7 Americans - over 46 million people - rely on a food bank each month.

Through its Scouting for Food program, the Boy Scouts of America has been lending a helping hand for almost 30 years. Locally, Pacific Skyline Council Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturers collect over 80,000 lbs. of food annually to benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties - enough to provide 15,000 families of four with a delicious and nutritious holiday meal each year.

How you can get involved - "Stake a Claim" in your local neighborhood by contacting your District's Scouting for Food Coordinator or by attending your District's October Roundtable. On November 4, put out door hangers in your neighborhood explaining our program to local residents, and then return on November 11 to pick up non-perishable food donations. All donations should be delivered to a food bank collection point or directly to the Second Harvest Food Bank in San Carlos (mapExternal Link).

Door hangers may be picked up at your District's November Roundtable meeting (November 2) - check with your unit leader or with the Council Office for location and more details.

Questions? Please contact Tom Kenney at thomas.kenney@scouting.org or (650) 341.5633 x114.
