On January 31st our council will canvas hundreds of neighborhoods and place bags on front door steps in an effort to collect food for the hungry within our communities. Scouts will go back on February 7th to collect those bags filled with food and drop them off at a local food pantry. Please make sure your unit is ready for this event by letting your District Executive or District Scouting For Food chairman know that your units will be participating and let them know roughly how many bags you will need....
