Scouting For Food in 2015 -- THANK YOU for a job well done
Thanks for all your work on Scouting For Food this year! This is a huge and very important "Good Turn".
In 2015 our scouts and volunteers collected 77,259 pounds of food overall. 60,600 pounds of food were delivered to the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC), 13,105 pounds were delivered to SHARE of McLean, 3,020 pounds were delivered to Food For Others (FFO) and 534 pounds of late pick ups delivered to various places.
Final Step: Reporting (please report by 10PM Wednesday November 18)
Note that participating in Scouting For Food also qualifies under Messengers of Peace (MOP) for those units/individuals who wish to earn that new patch. Just click on MOP rather than Scouting for Food on the JTE system
Scouting For Food is an important service project where our scouts from all over the National Capitol Area go out and collect food donations for area food banks. This is an extremely valuable “good turn” that is of enormous help to area food banks. Donations collected in Arlington go to the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC), which is a big food bank in Arlington. AFAC provides supplemental groceries to Arlington families in need and is currently serving 2,000+ client families a week. (see: www.afac.org). Most donations collected in McLean go to SHARE of McLean (see: www.shareofmclean.org).
