Scouting for Food

Scouting for Food is the Virginia Headwaters Council’s community stewardship project aimed at addressing hunger in the community in which we live and work.

Scouting for Food is an annual food drive sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America. It is part of our program that emphasizes our slogan “Do a Good Turn Daily”. Since 1988, Scouts nationwide have participated in this effort. Annually in the Virginia Headwaters Council, we consistently collect over 22,000 pounds of food that benefits the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank and over 20 community food pantries.

Scouts collect non-perishable food items, deliver to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank or select their local food pantry or charter organization food kitchen. It’s that simple. Particularly this year, thousands of families will depend upon us and this food drive!
