Scouting for Food

posted Oct 25, 2017, 6:50 PM by Pack 5 Webmaster
Scouting for food service event is on Saturday 10/28 and then on next Saturday 11/4.

For those who are not familiar with Scouting for food, here are some details:
 Scouting for food is a 2 weekend service project where scouts collect food donation from all over the town. 
On 10/28, the cub scouts collect door tags from Bedford Presbyterian Church between 8am and 12pm where Troop 414 scouts will assign routes for the cub scouts to distribute the door tags. You can pick routes based on your comfort. Each route has roughly 50 houses to cover in a neighborhood. 
On 11/04, cub scouts go back to the Presbyterian Church to pickup new route and then collect non perishable food bags between 9am and noon for the selected route. 

A few things to consider:
Scouting for food is not mandatory. While we encourage people to participate both weekends, we understand that it may not be possible for all. Please participate to your best capacity. 
The routes are available on first-come-first-serve basis. So even if you are planning to do your route later in the morning, please try and get the route as early as possible. 
Cub scouts need to be present to sign in when you pickup the routes and sign out when complete. The Pack gets credit for all your service hours. 
Cub scouts are required to wear their Class A uniform when participating. 

If you have any questions, please reach out to us. 

The Families receiving these food items are counting on all of us.
