Scouting for Food

Scouting for Food Youth
One in six Arizonans and one in four Arizona youth are affected by food insecurity, meaning that they lack access to food and/or are unable to feed the entire household on a daily basis. Each spring, once the holiday season wraps to a close, Arizona food banks face their lowest rates of donations from the community.

More Info coming soon!

Let’s show Arizona that Scouts can make a difference!

Scouting for Food is an opportunity for Scouts throughout the Grand Canyon Council fight hunger in our communities. Scouting for Food is the leading service program for Boy Scouts of America and is a part of the national BSA program – Good Turn for America.

In partnership with local food banks, this council-wide service project will beginning January as Scouts distribute door hangers in their neighborhoods to announce the upcoming food drive. Days later, Scouts will return on the first Saturday of February to collect donations from doorsteps and deliver them to their local food banks and pantries.

We would love for each and every Scout in Arizona to lead by example and do their best to combat food insecurities. Our goal is to collect 12 pounds of food, or approximately 15 cans of food, per scout. This goal would allow Scouts to provide 150,000 pounds of food to those in need! To aid in achieving success, we have provided a tool kit of resources at the bottom of this page to assist unit leaders and scouts in running an efficient, easy, and successful campaign!
