Scouting For Food and the Hobo Dinner!

The Scouting for Food event starts March 8th and runs through March 14th.  We are asking that all scouts canvas their neighborhoods and families and ask for donations of non-perishable items as our yearly scouting for food event.  All donations will be dropped off to Must Ministries.

We ask that you wear your uniform when you drop off bags to willing neighbors, then let them know you will collect all bags by March 14th / 15th at the latest.  Then, bring everything you’ve collected to the Hobo Dinner on March 15th, from 6:30 to 8:00 P.M., hosted at the Christ United Methodist Church, located on 1340 Woodstock Rd, across from the Super Target.

At the Hobo dinner, we are inviting all scouts to bring 1 (one) canned food item to put into our Hobo pot!.  We ask that it be something non-dairy, and not anything seafood or shellfish.  But anything else goes!  It sounds disgusting, but tastes great.  Bring all your donations with a count of what you’ve gathered.  Each scout who brings at least 1 (one) item gets a patch, and those that bring 100+ items gets a Super-achiever patch.

We will provide the utensils and drinks, and would ask if each family brings one dessert item (box of cookies etc).  We will hold our pack meeting at that same time, and hand out more advancements that have been completed at that point.

Plan on joining us for a fun time, and if your scout wants to dress like a hobo, they are certainly welcome to!
