Scouting for foodMarch 5, 2022
Join Scouts across the CPC as we collect tens of thousands of pounds of food for local food banks and pantries.
Scouting for Food is moving to the first Saturday in March.
Hunger does not stop after the holiday season.
After inquiring with the local food pantries we serve, there is a crucial need for food in the Spring, after the surplus of giving from the holiday season runs out. In a concerted effort to be a helpful Scout in a time of need, Cascade Pacific Council has moved their Scouting for Food efforts to the first Saturday of March. We hope this effort will help refill shelves and continue to support local families in need.
Units are welcome to do a food collection multiple times throughout the year.

About Scouting for Food
A Scout who helps those in need will develop kindness, compassion and a lifetime need to make a difference in the world. An annual tradition since 1986, Scouting for Food rallies Scouts across the nation to collect food for local food banks.
Cascade Pacific Council Scouts will collect food for the hungry and provide it to specific local food banks throughout the greater Northwest. Food banks will be accepting non-perishable, unexpired food. Other ideas include monetary donations or gift cards.
