Area members of Scouts USA and Cub Scouts units will be crisscrossing the area the next two weekends as a part of their annual Scouting for Food Drive.
The food drive kicks off by dropping off bags on April 10th and picking them up full of non-perishable items on April 17th. Last year’s Scouting for Food Drive was moved to the fall due to the pandemic, though Bay-Lakes Council BSA did mobilize local units to do virtual events to help raise much-needed funds.
Scouts USA Troop 1022 leader Sean Linnan says the community has been great in supporting local families in need at area food pantries since the pandemic's beginning.
Linnan is happy Scouting for Food is returning this year as the Boy Scouts of America have tried to find the balance between keeping families safe while still meeting to support the community. Bay-Lakes Council has held the annual Scouting for Food Drive for the last 32 years.
