About Scouting for Food

How Does it Work?

Below is a virtual grocery list which includes the cost of each item.  To virtually send the food bank the items that you wish to donate, simply donate the corresponding monetary amount.  All procedes from this virtual food drive will go to Northwest Harvest.  For a list of food programs that are supported by Northwest Harvest, click here:  

What is Scouting for Food?

Each year, Chief Seattle Council conducts their annual Scouting for Food campaign- a large scale food drive where scouts across Western Washington go door to door to collect food donations for their local food banks.  In 2019 alone, scouts in Chief Seattle Council collected over 74,000 pounds of food. 

This year, we are excited to announce that Chief Seattle Council has partnered with Northwest Harvest to launch a virtual food drive.  Since many food banks are unable to accept physical food donations due to the pandemic, scouts will be going door to door to ask people to virtually donate food instead. 

Why is Scouting for Food important?

According to Feeding America, 34 million people lived in poverty in America in 2019.  Before the Coronavirus Pandemic, 35 million people struggled with hunger in the United States, including more than 10 million children- a number that has no doubt only increased as the pandemic takes its toll on the economy and families throughout the country.  Even worse, children are more likely to face food insecurity than any other group in the United States.
