Scouting for Food 2019
- Friday, March 01 — Sunday, March 31
- Across the Ozarks
Join Boy Scouts across the Ozarks for the 30th annual Scouting for Food.
Local Scouts are going door-to-door this month to collect nonperishable food for Ozarks Food Harvest. Grocery sacks will be dropped off in area neighborhoods throughout the month.
Donations will also be accepted at the following places throughout March:
- BSA Ozark Trails Council, 1616 S. Eastgate Ave. Donations are accepted Monday-Friday 9 a.m to 6 p.m. or Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- Ozarks Food Harvest, 2810 N. Cedarbrook Ave. Donation drop-off is at west end of the building, directly off Packer Road. Donations are accepted Monday-Thursday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. or Friday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The most needed donations include tuna and canned meats, peanut butter, beans, boxed or canned meals, rice and pasta, canned vegetables and fruit and cereal.
Last year’s drive provided nearly 17,000 meals.
This year, Scouts must report their donation totals online.
Thank you for supporting Ozarks Food Harvest and local Boy Scouts!
