Scouting for Food is Bay-Lakes Council’s effort to provide community service on a large scale basis. Bay-Lakes Council has been leading the way for 29 years to mobilize thousands of Scouts to collect food for those in need. All the food items collected go directly to the participating food pantries that serve people in your own community.


Our sincere thanks to the thousands of Scouts, Leaders & Parents who take part in the collection every year. The over 100 pantries were most appreciative for all the donations. We thank the community as well for their generosity. Thanks also to our major sponsor – J.J. Keller Foundation for their continued support. Our other sponsors include Fox Valley Technical College, Sargento Foods Inc., Bellin Health, and Beyond Health. Thank you!
