Scouting for Food
One of Scouting’s foundational principles is “doing a good turn daily.” Scouts at all levels of our program participate in good turns and service projects. Some of these are for a rank advancement, the most famous being the Eagle Scout project. Others are being good citizens or environmental programs to make our neighborhoods and communities better places to live.
Scouting for Food has been a project of the BSA for decades. Scouts go out on one weekend (in 2014, November 8), place flyers on the doors of their neighbors, and come back later (in 2014, November 15) to pick up the food and take it to the Helping Hands of Odessa food bank.
