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.
For Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the U.S. Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), a division of the Department of Homeland Security, is encouraging more people to try to be the former, and not the latter. The initiative ties in nicely with what the BSA is already teaching its older youth members: How to stay safe online in part by securing your passwords.
