Jamboree food alliances announced

Jambologo Cracker Barrel sat in on a presentation about the 2010 jamboree last night, and there’s some breaking news to report.

The jamboree committee has brought on five familiar food vendors to serve visitors, participants, and staff at the jamboree.

The vendors are: Burger King, Chick-Fil-A, Subway, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Freshens smoothies.

These vendors will give all in attendance an alternative to kiosk lunches while they’re out enjoying the jamboree.

  1. This selection seems a little contrary to BSAs recent health kick.

  2. While I realize jamborees are meant to be fun, this selection of vendors (minus Subway) seems to contradict the new fitness guidelines. Sends the wrong message in my opinion.

  3. Uh, not exactly the best examples of healthy eating choices, except perhaps for Freshens.
    The recent “Fat Chance” article in Scouting states, “Body-mass index (BMI) data collected from applicants for the 2010 National Scout Jamboree show that 41 percent of the youth were overweight or obese; among the adults, a staggering 77.5 percent were overweight, obese, or morbidly obese.”
    What kind of example are we setting?

  4. How, ironic that we try to encourage a healthy lifestyle among our members. But bring in fast food options at the Jamboree.

  5. The BSA President, National Commissioner, and Chief Scout Executive are all pictured in the last Scouting magazine (see page 43). All three look like they could stand to lose some weight.

  6. @Rick Lobrecht: Unless you order carefully not even Subway is healthy.

  7. SubWay and a milk is a 1000 percent improvement over kiosk food and CapriSun

  8. Let it go people they are just options to eat. I highly doubt that one scout is going to eat fast food at every meal. But, if he did so what put him back on your tofu diet when he gats back home. It is their vacation let him have it. Instead why don’t you talk about moderation with your son.

  9. What you are all forgetting is that the boys are fed at their camps, 3 square meals. There is more food provided that they can eat. The vendors are not intended to be the only source of nutrition.
