Scouting for Food

Water and Woods will be participating in Scouting for Food this fall on two Saturdays for the majority of the council. ( Units in the Lansing Area, Flint Area, and Great Lakes Bay Region are invited to participate). Door hanger/bag distribution will be on Saturday, November 2.  Scouts will return the following Saturday,  November 9 to collect food and deliver to local food pantries.  

Port Huron Area, Blue Water District does their collection in December.

We plan to have a semi trailer parked at the Burton office for units to take their collected food.  Units are also encouraged to take the collected food to their local food pantry.
