The Baltimore Area Council has collected food for local food banks and pantries as part of the Scouting for Food civic service project for many years. Scouting for Food has grown into the Boy Scouts of America's largest single-day community food drive, collecting 45 million pounds of food donations. 


It takes a lot of community support, dedication,and volunteers to make Scouting for Food a success

Bag Distribution Day: On March 16, 2019 Scouts will deliver plastic bags to residences. During the week, community residents will fill their bags with nutritious canned goods and non-perishable items.

Bag Collection Day: On March 23, 2019 the Scouts will retrieve the filled bags from residents and take them to local food banks and pantries.
