In the Boy Scout Promise, a boy scout promises “to help other people at all times”. By participating in Scouting for Food, scouts come a step closer to fulfilling those words.

Scouting for Food is when Scouts go out into the community and collect food items to donate to local food banks for those less fortunate.
All Scouts should participate in this food drive. Scouts should do a good turn daily, and this is a fantastic way for Scouts to gain community service hours, and for the Scouts to be seen out in the community doing good things for people who need it.

All of the food Troop 465 collects will be donated to the Sonlight Vision Ministries food pantry at Hickory Flat Fellowship Church. Scouting is a community based organization so let’s support our community.
