Scouting for Food

Scouting for Food is one of nation's largest food drives that Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Sea Scouts, and Venturing Crews participate in to support their local food pantries and hunger-relief agencies.

The Scouts of the Jersey Shore Council have continuously exceeded expectations and fully stocked dozens of our partner agencies with bags and bags of canned food.

Please sign up for Scouting for Food with the form below and after your collection please make sure to fill out the results and submit your results.  The sign up form is important so we make can make sure that units aren't going into the same neighborhoods.  The results form is important so we can keep track of and publicize in the local media outlets the awesome service our units are doing for the community. All forms should be sent to

Please also make sure to record your service hours into the Good Turn for America Website.

After you have submitted the form you can pick up your Scouting for Food hang tags can be picked up at your local Scout Service Center
