What is it? Scouting for food is a food drive that the National Capital Area Council participates in to help those less fortunate in our area. As part of the Aquia District, all units are asked to participate and will pass out bags with a note asking for residents to set out food to be collected the following week. The food we collect is distributed to local area food banks and food pantries.

What do I need to do now? Mark your calendars and make sure to plan to participate in this important program. Also, figure out who will be your unit representative and make sure to email your unit representative’s name, email address, and phone numbers to: Laura Lee Curran at: mum2ian@yahoo.com

Where? Units will pick up their bags and maps at the October Round Table Meeting, October 12th.

When? Scouting for Food bags will be distributed to neighborhoods throughout the Aquia District on Nov. 4th. Then the following week, on Saturday, Nov. 11th, food will be collected and dropped off at the distribution centers.

Can food be collected in a different way? Yes. Some units have collected food in front of stores and have had great results. If your unit plans on doing this, you will need to contact the stores to secure a weekend that is available on their calendar. The stores’ calendars fill up fast so act now if you plan on going this route. Also, email Laura Lee Curran at mum2ian@yahoo.com to let her know that your unit will be doing this and not be distributing bags.
