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. (Excuse the commercial at the beginning of the video. San Diego-Imperial Council and Boy Scouts of America in no way endorse the advertised product.)
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.
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.
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:
