BackPack Program: Food for Kids

backpack-logo_ad2013-e1368115277564_edit

The Food Bank of Siouxland and area Boy Scouts partner for the annual “Scouting for Food” food drive. This event brings significant quantities of food to the Food Bank to help feed the community’s hungry citizens, and is a wonderful community service opportunity for the scouts. The food drive has two elements: collection at the homes of residents, as well as food collection at area grocery stores. Door hanger reminders are put on area doors and the following week, scouts return to collect food set out for them.


Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the “Scouting for Food” event has been delayed and will be rescheduled when it is safe for everyone. Stay tuned for updates! “The Food Bank of Siouxland is so appreciative of the work of the scouts,” stated Executive Director Linda Scheid. “So many people need the support of the agencies offering either meals or take-home food, and that means the demand here at the Food Bank is high. The work of the Boy Scouts is a tremendous boost.” Scouting for Hunger is sponsored in part by: The Food Bank does request that participants not donate expired food, open containers, product without labels, or product in glass containers, as they are easily broken. Most commonly needed items include canned fruits, canned meats, cereal, peanut butter, and pasta.

Please feel free to contact the Food Bank of Siouxland (255-9741) or Boy Scouts of America (255-8846) if you have any questions. More information can be found on the Mid-America Council website by clicking this link.
