Donate to Scouting for Food
One in five children live in a food insecure home. There are children who don’t know where their next meal will come from in every community. Help us make a big difference in the lives of hungry children by donating to the campaign. A donation of just $5 can provide 15 meals, $10 will provide 30 meals. It's approximately 3 meals for every $1 donated. Please be generous and help support Scouting for Food! Donate Now
