Scouting for Food

Posted By Scouting for Food Coordinators, Tuesday, August 20, 2013
Updated: Tuesday, August 13, 2013

This is an annual event where scouting units from across the NCAC, including the Patriot district, collect food for those in need. The food the Patriot District collects goes directly to the Capital Area Food Bank for distribution to various other food banks and pantries. Historically we have faithfully filled three huge trucks with the food we collect. Our drop off point is the Safeway at the Burke Centre Parkway. We will be there from 9 AM to 2 PM on Sat Nov 9th.


Important Dates:

October 12th: At roundtable, we will have the SFF bags for unit representatives to pick up

for distribution in their areas. It is imperative that a representative from every unit attend this Roundtable. At Roundtable you will receive your bags and be assigned an area to cover. Please ask your scout parents if they have seen SFF bags in their neighborhoods in previous years. Every empty door is a missed opportunity. Please let us know on Oct 12th of any neighborhoods that have been inadvertently missed in recent years.


November 2rd: Units distribute the bags to their designated neighborhoods, beginning no earlier than 9 AM.. With a knock and a call out of "Scouting For Food", a scout leaves the bag on the door with the hopes of finding a bag of food next week. IF you run out of bags, you may also tie a note to the door as a reminder of the date for SFF pick up. You may also call Mark Greer to see if there are any extra bags left over.


November 9th: Scouts begin picking up the food at 9 AM and deliver the bags to the Safeway located at Burke Center Parkway Shopping Center. We do not take glass jars- please leave them behind if possible. We will ask each unit to stop by the SFF table to identify the unit dropping off and give a bag count.. Each bag we estimate as approximately 5 lbs. OA Scouts will diligently be waiting to assist, often with the help of a crew from GMU, and some very reliable dedicated adults.


Volunteers Needed: On November 9th, we need volunteers to collect and sort the food, direct traffic,

and many other duties that are much appreciated. Our volunteers sign in at the SFF table where they can have service hours validated. If you are an OA member and plan to attend the event, please try to bring an orange or yellow safety vest to wear over your official BSA OA uniform. If it is cold, please dress accordingly. We will provide hydration and nutrition. Please contact Mark Greer or Jean Boyle if you or your unit can help at the collection point on November 9th.


Thank You.


Your 2013 SFF Coordinators
