Scouting for Food... A Scout is Helpful
Scouting for Food is the largest single-day food collection event in Dallas and one of the largest in the nation. On one day, approximately 30,000 Scouts go door-to-door collecting non-perishable food items for the less fortunate. The food is then distributed to local food pantries and assistance agencies across Circle Ten Council.
Tom Thumb has sponsored this food drive for 26 years and collects food at their location throughout the entire month of February. If you would like to participate and do not receive a bag in February or would just like to help out more, you can drop your food items at the collection barrel at your local Tom Thumb store.
