Scouting for Food: November 5 and 12

posted Sep 27, 2016, 10:31 PM by Lynn Hamilton

Scouting For Food bags will be distributed at the October Round Tables in conjunction with re-chartering on Thursday, October 12, 2016.  All units should have a representative at the October meeting to pick up bags for Scouting For Food Distribution.

Scouting For Food Bag Distribution date is Saturday, November 5, 2016. 

Phil Dennis and/or Daniel Johnston will be in the hallway handing out the SFF bags at the Roundtable from 7:00-9:30 pm. me find me at Boy Scout Round Table if I’m not in the hallway. 

Scouting For Food is an important service project where our scouts from all over the National Capitol Area go out and collect food donations for area food banks. Donations collected in Seneca District go to the Manna Food Bank in Rockville.  We also provide food to Gaithersburg Help, St. Martins Food Bank, Damascus Help among others. 

It is imperative that each unit have a representative at the October Round Table to pick up their bags.  Please remember to provide contact information for your representative when picking up the bags and to mark on the maps WHERE your unit will be distributing/collecting.  Once we have the maps marked up this week, they will be available ON-LINE so units can see local areas that may need coverage.

Each unit is responsible for reporting the amount of food collected to our council.  To help with this effort, each unit must provide a COUNT OF THE NUMBER OF BAGS DROPPED OFF at the collection points listed below.  If your unit delivers food to a place other than the two locations below (which are delivered to Manna), then please provide an email to Phil Dennis with either the number of bags or total weight of food collected.  Further details will be provided. 

Thank you!
