2020 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." Scouts demonstrate their Good Turn efforts in community stewardship through Scouting for Food.

Event Organization

Units sign up to participate with their town’s area coordinator.
Cub Scout, Scout and Venturing units distribute Scouting for Food flyers or door hangars to neighborhoods on one day then 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 local 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.

  • Distribute flyers/bags on Saturday February 29th 2020.
  • Collect Donations Saturday March 7th 2020

 Last year, during Scouting for Food,over 35,000 items of food were collected by scouts in McHenry county for their local food pantries.

We need area coordinators to make this another successful year.

Area coordinators work with the units in their town to coordinate collection areas and arrange an opening time for food donation drop-off with their local food pantry.
