Scouting For Food

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!
