Scouting for Food

Posted on by on January 29th, 2014 | Comments Off

Scouting for FoodGeorgia has one of the highest numbers of people who go hungry.  In fact, many of the families affected skip meals, or don’t have enough food for all members of the family.

20% of the people living in Georgia are “Food Insecure”, meaning, they don’t always know where their next meal will come from.

Almost 29% of Georgia children live in food insecure homes.

 

How Can I Help?

Scouting for Food is the largest food drive that the Boy Scouts of America participates in annually.

Each year, our Scouts, leaders, and parents collect items that serve people in need around the country.
