Scouting for Food
Saturday, March 14, 2020
We need your help to assist families in our communities. We are asking every Pack, Troop and Crew in our District to participate in this year’s Scouting for Food Service Project.
Scouting for Food is BSA’s annual food drive. We coordinate this large effort, however, your Unit may choose to participate more often. Through a generous donation from Shop Rite (the Wakefern Corporation), printed plastic supermarket bags are available for each unit. Bags and instruction sheets are available now from the NNJC office. Each Scout should visit 10 homes in their community and distribute bags to their neighbors on or about March 4 th . The Scout should then return on March 14 th  to collect the food bags. Scouts should be in uniform and use the buddy system when visiting homes. Recommended food items are printed on the bag, along with instructions for the recipient.

All bags must be picked up on Saturday, March 14 th  after 9:00 am. Collected items must be delivered between 9 am to 4 pm to the Bergen Police and Fire Academy, 281 Camp Gaw Road in Mahwah. The Center for Food Action will pick up the food and distribute it to needy families in our area. All Units are welcome to help sort and repack food at the Academy that day.
