Scouting For Food this year is November 7 (Bag Distribution) and November 14 (Collection of Donations).
We're handing out the Scouting For Food Bags, at the October CBD Roundtable, Thursday, October 8, 2015. (The Chain Bridge District (CBD) Roundtables are held at the LDS Arlington Ward Chapel, 1600 North Inglewood Street; Arlington, VA)
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).
