Food Drive

The Scouting for Food annual food-collection drive will begin the weekend of November 6, 2021. Please help make a difference in our community by donating nonperishable food.

Scouting for Food takes place on two consecutive weekends. On the weekend of November 6th, Scouts will distribute bags & flyers to let the community know about the drive. 

On the following weekend, Saturday, November 13, 2021, the Scouts will revisit those houses to pick up bags full of canned food, cereal, pasta, peanut butter, juice, and other nonperishable items.

Please have your items outside in a visible location BEFORE 8 AM on Saturday, November 13, 2021.

All food donations will be delivered that day to the Eccumanical Food Pantry on Roseland Rd., in Sebastian.

Drop Boxes for Food Donations

Drop boxes for food donations will also be located inside Winn Dixie on Sebastian Blvd and the North County Library from this Saturday thru next Saturday at noon.

Last year, Troop 505 picked up and delivered a tad shy of 9,000 lbs of food to the pantry, and Cub Scout Pack 589 picked up and delivered almost 4,000 lbs.
