Photo Fridays: Scouting for Food (23 photos)

The trees have shed their leaves in many parts of the country, and that can only mean one thing: It’s Scouting for Food time.

The annual collection of canned goods and other donated food items strengthens the vital link between Scouting units and their surrounding community.

For this Photo Friday, check out 23 photos of Scout troops giving back:

One thought on “Photo Fridays: Scouting for Food (23 photos)

  1. Good images! This is one service project that ALL of the boys can do. Even the like Tiger scouts can participate and make an impact for the community.

    We go one large box of canned goods that we over 20 years old. Some cans were rusted and oozing juice. A few were bulging. One box of Tapeoka had a 15 cent price tag on it! We donated that to a museum. We ended up tossing that stuff out. Talk about bringing a blemished sheep for the offering. But that was just one person’s donation. Most of the food was good food given by generous people.
