Scouting for Food is an annual food collection orchestrated by Scouts from the South Georgia Council. Local Scouts distribute plastic bags to homes across the region and return to pick up the bags, now filled with food, one week later. Collected food is distributed to needy families throughout the communities of the Council.

Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Venturing Crews and Explorer Posts throughout the Council will be distributing Scouting for Food donation bags in local neighborhoods.  Food collected will be distributed to Second Harvest Food Banks throughout the area.

Bags may be picked up from either Scout Service Center the first week of February or contact your District Executive for more information.
