Scouting for Food is a region-wide food drive led by local Boy Scouts with the goal of collecting 25,000 pounds of food for those in need, with a focus on youth. We are proud to continue this partnership in the community.
The drive will take place over two weekends:
Ø Bag Neighbor Distribution Days/ This can be curve side pick-up or door – Saturday, October 11-17, 2020
Ø Scouting for Food Collection Day – Saturday, October 24, 2020 @ 2226 NW Military Hwy, SA Texas 78213
Starting on Sunday, October 11-17, 2020, scout units from the Alamo Area Council Boy Scouts of America will be delivering empty paper bags donated by H-E-B throughout your local neighborhoods. The bags will include instructions with a list of non-perishable items that are needed most. You can then leave the full bag on your doorstep early the following Saturday morning Oct. 24, 2020.
On Saturday, October 24, 2020, we will be starting at 9:00am – 2:00pm,Boy Scouts will retrace their steps, pick up the filled bags and deliver them to the drop points throughout the region where the San Antonio Food Bank will have trucks waiting to collect the bags.
