Scouting For Food in 2015 is November 7 (Bag Distribution) and November 14 (collect Donations)

 

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).


In 2014 our scouts and volunteers collected 71,864 pounds of food overall.  52,000 pounds of food were delivered to the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC), 16,158 pounds were delivered to SHARE of McLean, 3,506 pounds were delivered to Food For Others (FFO) and there was 200 pounds of late pick ups delivered to various places.  We had 1,308 scouts assisting with the effort and 943 adult volunteers – the largest participation on record!!  Congratulations, Scouts!
