Scouting for Food

Scouting For Food

Scouting For Food is the single greatest community impact service project Scouting has in Southeast Michigan. Without Scouting For Food, thousands upon thousands of people - kids and adults - will go to be bed hungry. From the 1st grade Tiger Cub, to the 17 year old Eagle Scout, from the younger sibling to the parents and grandparents, from your friends to your leaders, we all need to work together to help each other. That's what Scouting For Food is about - helping each other and helping your neighbor.  Please sign your pack/troop/crew up to participate in Scouting For Food.

On Saturday, November 12, 2011, the Great Lakes Council in conjunction with Gleaners Food Bank will be hosting it’s annual Food Drive. Please plan to have your unit to participate. Our communities need rely on our help! For more information on how to sign up or request a neighborhood please contact Dave Pranger, Council Scouting for Food Chairman at djp3@att.net.
