2019 Sycamore District Scouting for Food 

Since 1910, the ideals of Scouting have guided our youth to perform "service to others and to the community." Responding to the plight of America's poor and hungry is a traditional Scouting "good turn." through Scouting for Food.

The SFF coordinator for Sycamore District is Susan Kelly susanclancykelly@gmail.com or (847) 219 0882

Event Organization
Cub Scout, Scout and Venturing units will distribute Scouting for Food bags to neighborhoods on one day then will return to collect canned food contributions about one week later (on a pre-arranged day). Contributions to the Scouting for Food campaign will be distributed to the food banks, pantries, and kitchens in communities of the Scout units where the collections are made to help these providers meet the needs of our hungry neighbors.
