Scouting for Food

Scouting for Food is Tecumseh Council's service project to help the hungry during the lowest point of the year for local food pantries. Saturday, March 16 is the day to deliver door hangers, and Saturday, March 23 is the day to pickup food and deliver it to food pantries. Our goal is to collect 60,000 pounds of food in the five county region of Logan, Champaign, Clark, Greene and Clinton.

Door hangers will be handed out at homes again this year. They will be available for units to pick up at February Roundtables.

Unit participation: Unit participation is essential to the success of Scouting for Food. Last year, approximately 80% of our Troops, Packs and Crews actively participated in the council "good turn" service project. We hope to increase that number this year. The number of volunteers working on the project has a direct correlation with the amount of food we are able to collect. The more people we are able to engage in the project the larger area we are able to cover in each county. 

Goal: This year we hope to collect over 60,000 pounds of food for our neighbors who are in need of our help. This is the single largest community service project that we do all year. We also want over 2,000 Scouts and parents to help with the project.

Food shelters: We help dozens of food pantries and shelters throughout the council with this project. A few of these include: The Second Harvest Food Bank, Enon Relief, Faith in Chris Lutheran Church, Our Daily Bread in Urbana, My Father's Kitchen in Wilmintgon, Xenia FISH, Fairborn FISH and many others.
