2017 Scouting For Food Project
Scouting for Food is an annual community service effort supported
directly by the Mid-America Council and partner organizations in our
local community. Under the Boy Scouts of America strategic pillar of
being recognized as an advocate for youth and youth issues, Scouts
across Nebraska and Western Iowa collect nearly 200,000 food items for
those in need. This is the equivalent of approximately 114,000 meals.

Donate to Scouting for Food
One in five children live in a food insecure home. There are children who don’t know where their next meal will come from in every community. Help us make a big difference in the lives of hungry children by donating to the campaign. A donation of just $5 can provide 15 meals, $10 will provide 30 meals. It's approximately 3 meals for every $1 donated. Please be generous and help support Scouting for Food! Donate Now
