2017 Scouting For Food

2017 SFF Unit Commitment Form

Please submit Unit Commitment Form by October 27.


2017 SFF Unit Collection Report

Please submit the Unit Collection Report by December 1

  • Please remember….we cannot use bags from previous years, this is an issue with sponsorship. Our sponsors change from year to year and we must honor that relationship. 
  • Scouting for Food dates: 11/11/17 door hanger distribution, 11/18/17 food collection
  • The Scouting For Food committee is aware of issues involving mapping and area coverage; PLEASE help us in our effort to make this an easier activity next year. We are looking for examples of systems used for individual units. Consider submitting copies of how your unit covers an area: maps, neighborhood lists, zip code assignment etc. Send examples to Keith Weiss, kjweiss@ptd.net
  • Door hangers will be available in the Scout Service Center beginning the week 10/16/17; please make sure you register online prior to picking up your hangers.
  • Units are encouraged to use the hanger as a recruitment/outreach tool; there is space on the back of the hanger for individual unit information. Pre-printing labels would be best, the hanger measures 4 x 8 in.
  • Thank you for all your time and effort!!
