Scouting for Food
“Scouting for Food” is Scouting’s community stewardship project aimed at addressing the problem of hunger in the community in which we live and work. It is a project rooted in the very foundation of the Scouting movement.
“Scouting for Food” is a food collection effort regularly carried out by Pack 316. Some methods in which we conduct food drives are through distributing donation requests (flyers, notes, and/or bags) throughout a designated area. We then return to collect plastic grocery bags filled with donated food. We’ve also worked with local businesses to have “Scouting for Food” days or donation baskets at their locations. Our most recent effort to bring awareness to the problem of hunger in the Blackstone Valley area has been our participation in the Blackstone Valley CROP Walk.
Pack 316 supports the food pantry at the Second Congregational Church, as well as the pantry at St. Denis Church.
