SCOUTING FOR FOOD

A Cub Scout promises to "give goodwill" and a Boy Scout promises "to help other people at all times." There is no better way to show our Scouting Spirit than by participating in the annual Scouting for Food drive! Now is the time to show our community the Scouting values of being loyal, helpful, kind and cheerful. 


Our Pack 168 Scouting for Food effort runs the first two Saturdays in November.  Food bag drop off will be Saturday, November 1 at 9 am at the Blankner School parking lot. There, we will hand out bags and area maps to each family. People can then take the bags and maps and distribute to their designated neighborhood. This usually takes about 1 to 1.5 hours. Then the following Saturday, November 8 we will gather again at Blankner School at 9 am, then split up and collect the filled bags of food and return to Blankner where the Huff family will collect all the donations and take them to the local food bank.
