Collect food to help families in need in Michigan!
PRIOR TO OCTOBER 25, 2024
Participating packs, troops, and crews sign up for the service project by filling out the form on this webpage (bottom of this page). Your District’s volunteer Scouting For Food Chair will contact participating units to arrange a time and location to pick up flyers or bags (bags are only available in some counties) for canvassing neighborhoods. All participating units need to coordinate with their District Program Committee to get assigned neighborhoods for the project.

Participating packs, troops, and crews canvas their pre-identified neighborhoods, placing Scouting For Food flyers on doorsteps in local neighborhoods. Remember, it is illegal to place flyers in mailboxes.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2024
Your Scouting unit returns to their same neighborhood between 9:30 am – 12 pm to collect any donated food residents have left on their doorstep. Food donations can be taken to one of our sponsored collection points listed below. We will post additional locations here as we confirm them.
