Scouting For Food - America's Largest One Day Food Drive

Posted on Jan 14 2018 - 5:19am

Started in 1985 as an Eagle Scout service project by the Greater Saint Louis Area Council, Scouting for Food is now America’s largest one day food drive.  In February, scouts all over the country will collect canned goods for their communities, supplying food banks, shelters, churches, etc. with the supplies to feed those in need.  

As part of the Flint River Council, Troop 75 collected over 500 items last year.  The total amount collected by troops throughout our council was over 26,000. 

 

One of the great things about Scouting for Food is that the program is nationwide, but supports local communities.  Troop 75 supports the Real Life Center, right here in Peachtree City.  The Real Life Center offers assistance to permanent residents of Fayette and Coweta county who are going through a difficult time -- maybe due to a job loss or illness of a family member.  They provide food, clothing, and counseling assistance to raise a hand up, not a hand out.

 

One of Scouting’s driving principles is “do a good turn daily”.  Scouts at all levels of our program participate in good turns and service projects. Participating in the food drive is a great way to be a good citizen, helping to make our neighborhoods and communities better places to live.  Participation qualifies for community service hours.   We’ll collect items such as:  canned vegetables and fruits, canned tuna, chicken and salmon, soups and stews, peanut butter, jelly, dried pasta and rice, powdered drink mixes, and bottled juices.   

 

If you can’t participate on February, 3, you can still contribute by bringing canned goods to the scout lodge on January 23rd or 30th.  On the 3rd, we will need scouts and a few adults that can help drive through the neighborhood, carrying collected items in their car, truck, or golf cart. 

 

On February 3, we’ll meet at 9:00 a.m. at The Averill home, 400 Lighthouse Lane, Peachtree City.  Parent contact:  Cheryl Averill, cell 678-371-3968.  The project usually takes 2-3 hours. 

 

 

Kindly, 

 

Cheryl
