Project Description

Scouting For Food 2020

Scouting for Food takes place on Saturday, March 28, 2020 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Scouts will collect food from their assigned neighborhoods and take it to the Hy-Vee Food Store at 2395 NW Arterial in Dubuque. The food is sorted and boxed there before being taken down to the Dubuque Food Pantry, and other neighboring food pantries.

This project is one of pride for Scouting in the community! The NEIC has been participating in this service project since 1990. Our food pantries are depending on us, as this drive alone supplies them with food for over three months!

What can be collected?
Scouting for Food can collect more than just food. It is a drive for non-perishable items and could also include toiletries. Another common gift to Scouting for Food is money. Anything collected (food, toiletries, money, etc.) should be turned in at a collection point.

What else can we do to help?
In addition to helping put out door hangers and doing the collecting, we want your help in promoting the event! Share the information with everyone you know! Share the event on social media!

Our Scouts love when they get to pick up bags of food for this food drive! Help spread the word so they won’t be disappointed!
