Scouting for Food began in St. Louis in 1985 as a council-wide service project. Starting in 1988, it became a national BSA program. Today, many councils across the country participate, collectively gathering hundreds of thousands of pounds of shelf-stable goods for food-disadvantaged residents of their local communities.
