2015 Scouting for Food Summary

Scouting For Food PatchI want to thank everyone who came out to help us with this year’s Scouting for Food drive; all of the scouts, parents, sibling, former scouts and their families, friends of the pack, the leaders, and Crew 1776.  While Scouting for Food may seem like more work than fun, the program goes a long way to to helping families who worry about where their next meal will come from.

This year, Pack 155 collected 1,761 food items weighing in a 1,746 lbs. To put this in another perspective we collected almost a “ton of food”, all of which was donated to the food bank at St. John’s Lutheran Church who works closely with Saints United Lutheran Church (our Chartered Organization) to provide meals to families in need from 9 different zip codes.

We had a total of 27 scouts, 10 siblings, 20 adults and 10 leaders participate in this service project with us. Over the two weekends combined, Pack 155 completed 252 service hours.

Scouting for FoodNot only should the scouts be commended for their tremendous efforts but a hearty thank you goes out to all of the parents, siblings and others who helped to make this annual food drive a success. Some walked with a group of kids, others followed behind with a vehicle to collect food items, while others helped unload, count and sort the food.  All of the cub scouts had a great time while performing a good turn and they most certainly did their best.

Once again, thank you to everyone involved.

Note: All Cub Scouts will have their service hours added to Scoutbook.
