Scouting for Food
November 14, 2020 , 8:00 am – 12:00 pm
With the assistance of local Boy Scout Troops and Cub Scout Packs, our Scouting for Food Drive is AFAC’s largest single day food drive. This partnership has collected over 1 million pounds of food since 1995. Each year, Scouting for Food is held on the second Saturday of every November.
To prepare for this event, Boy Scout troops go door to door and distribute bags to houses on their routes on a Saturday so that residents can gather non-perishable food to donate. On the following Saturday, scouts return to their routes, gather the food donations, and deliver to AFAC.
*Please note that not all troops are participating in this year’s event. If you do not get a bag, do not leave food outside your door. We will have various drop off sites throughout Arlington if you would like to donate food on this weekend.
