THE SCOUTING FOR FOOD - FOOD DRIVE
One out of every eight individuals in South Dakota is food insecure

We ask Scout groups, church groups, school groups, businesses, and other organizations to help us carry on the tradition of service and plan on participating in this year’s Scouting for Food - Food Drive.

The Feeding South Dakota Food Bank estimates that one out of eight people are food insecure. And, this need is growing every day. Through your group’s involvement in the Food Drive, you’ll have the opportunity to help alleviate this need.

In the past, the Scouting for Food -Food Drive has occured the first two Saturdays in December, however we’re changing that date going forward. This year’s door-to-door food drive will occur August 19, 2017 and August 26, 2017. By holding the Food Drive in the late Summer, we’ve been able to arrange partnerships with area businesses and events to help grow the food drive and serve for families. August also provides more favorable weather for the most signifcant portion of the Food Drive, the door-to-door portion.

We know that your calendar is full, but this is a worthy cause and we thank you for being apart of it - and to enable the leaders and members of your group to be a part of it.
