Scouting for Food

What is Scouting for Food? Collecting food, door-to-door, as one of your Good Turn unit activities. Door hangers are dropped-off by your unit before the pick-up day. The door hangers instruct homeowners to leave canned food out on the upcoming Saturday for Scouts to pick-up. This year Scouting for Food collection will be onApril 16. The Northern Lights District is working in partnership with CROSS in Rogers.
Participating units must contact Julie Ryan, the Northern Lights Scouting for Food Coordinator, to arrange a delivery time at CROSS. By working together we can avoid everyone showing-up at the same time' Please contact Julie at
