Scouting For Food In The Media

On March 5th, Jennifer Gilmore, Executive Director of Feeding America San Diego, participated in an interview on San Diego 6 Living. Jennifer explained how the Scouting For Food campaign helps the needs of the needy in our area.

Hunger in San Diego and Imperial Counties Persists

Current studies in San Diego and Imperial Counties show that 1 in 4 children are food insecure. Though we dedicate many individual and unit hours to serve the needs of hungry children and families through the Scouting for Food Service Project each year, we know that much more effort is needed to bring relief to our community members.

Our Effort to Help

Scouting For Food is the leading service program for Boy Scouts of America and part of the national BSA program, Good Turn for America. Our local council is teaming once again with Feeding America San Diego in the effort to collect more than 50,000 pounds of food for local agencies during the month of March, 2014.

Your Personal Involvement Is Important

Whether you are a unit leader, individual scout or community member wanting to participate in this important campaign, we welcome your support. Follow these easy steps to get involved:

  • Add Scouting For Food, 2014 to your unit or personal activity calendar for the month of March.
  • Review and use the following Scouting For Food Resources
  • Order Scouting For Food 2014 Door Hangers which may be used to canvas whole neighborhoods. These will be available at district Roundtables in January and February 2014 or you may retrieve them at the Council Service Center.
  • Before you start, Register your unit to participate in the campaign. Individuals may also register their participation. Once you collect the food, Report your participation. All participating scouts will receive a patch designed specifically for Scouting For Food 2014.
  • If you are not part of a BSA unit, consider making a Personal Donation.
