Scouting for Food

Do Your Good Turn...Support Our Community

Scouting for Food is the largest one-day food drive in the Boy Scouts of America. Started in 1985, Scouting for Food has expanded across the country, including the Alamo Area Council.  Did you know more than 43 million items have been collected since 1985?

Each year, our Scouts, leaders, and parents collect millions of items that serves food pantries and families within the Greater San Antonio Area, which includes Bexar and the 12 surrounding counties served by the Boy Scouts of America, Alamo Area Council.
