January 24, 2015 (hanger drop off)
January 31, 2015 (food pick up)
A Cub Scout promises to "give goodwill" and a Boy Scout promises "to help other people at all times." There is no better way to show our Scouting Spirit than by participating in the annual Scouting for Food drive! Now is the time to show our community the Scouting values of being loyal, helpful, kind and cheerful.
On January 24 and 31, 2015, Scouts throughout the Sam Houston Area Council will help make a difference to fight hunger. Scouting for Food is the leading service program for Boy Scouts of America and is a part of the national BSA program - Good Turn for America. In partnership with the Houston Food Bank and "Souper Bowl of Caring," this council-wide service project begins Saturday, January 24, 2015 as Scouts distribute door hangers in their neighborhoods to announce the upcoming food drive. Scouts return the following Saturday, January 31, 2015 to pick up and deliver donations to their local food banks and pantries.
All participating Scouts will receive a 2015 Scouting for Food patch. The unit Scout Fair coordinator can pick up the patches at their district March Roundtables.
