Scouting for Food 2014 -- November 1 and 8, 2014

Scouting For Food (SFF) in 2014 is a two part event, November 1 (bag distribution to the neighborhood) and November 8 (collection of donations and taking to the two drop off sites).  

 

This week:  please contact the civic associations in your SFF area and ask them to post an email on their list serves letting them know about Scouting For Food

 

This week, also prepare your SFF fliers and get your SFF signs ready.  

However, do not put up your SFF signs until Thursday Nov 6.

 

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. Donations collected in Arlington go to the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC), which is a big food bank in Arlington. Most donations collected in McLean go to SHARE in McLean.

We have maps of the Scouting For Food areas for each district below, as well as maps to the drop off sites in Arlington and McLean, see below.

 

Reporting: ask each unit to report your contribution Scouting For Food in the November 9-12 time frame. As we did last year, we will ask each unit to report to  two different sites  -- the Chain Bridge District’s SFF reporting site, and the Journey to Excellence reporting web site. Also note that the Scouting For Food work also qualifies under Messengers of Peace (MOP) for those units/individuals who wish to earn that new patch. 

 

For the CBD Scouting For Food reporting web site, we will be asking each unit to report their volunteer effort. We’re only asking for four things – (1) how many scouts volunteered on Collection Saturday Nov 1, (2) how many scouts volunteered on Collection Saturday November 8, – (3) how many scouts volunteered on Collection Saturday Nov 1, and (4) how many scouts volunteered on Collection Saturday November 8.   All we needs is estimates, so do you best to come up with a good estimate.
