Boy Scouts Scouting for Food – Canned Food Drive
On Saturday, November 14th thousands of Scouts will deliver more than 1 million blue Scouting for Food bags throughout the St. Louis metro area, southeast Missouri, and southern Illinois. They will return one week later on November 21 to collect the bags full of donated canned goods.

By giving to Scouting For Food, residents are helping those in need right in their own community. In St. Charles County, Scouts take donations directly to local food pantries including O.A.S.I.S. Residents who do not receive a bag can take canned food donations to any Goodwill store location Nov.
22-28 or donate virtually. To donate virtually to the St. Louis Food Bank or Operation Food Search just text ‘SCOUTFOOD’ to 91999.
