Cub Scout Pack 1776

Nov 4 and 11: Scouting For Food

Scouting for Food is BSA’s annual food collection program for local food banks.

Save the dates!

Oct 27: Tags delivered to Den Leaders to distribute to den scouts 
Nov 4: Place tags in neighborhoods, assigned by den
Nov 11: Collect food from same neighborhoods, assigned by den

Many thanks to our Scouting for Food Coordinators: Mavis & Maribel!

We need volunteers to drive the collected food to the main collection location at Bishop Ranch.


On Saturday, November 4, 2023, we will place door hangers at residences in our assigned neighborhoods. Each den will receive an area to cover. On Saturday, November 11, 2023, we will collect donations from doorsteps. 

Please NO glass containers or food that has a short shelf life. Canned and boxed food is great! Protein items like canned tuna, ham, sardines, & SPAM, as well as peanut butter are greatly needed.  

Donations will go to: Alameda Food Bank, Alameda County Community Food Bank, American Canyon Emergency Food Bank, Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, Napa Food Bank, San Francisco – Marin Food Bank, St. Helena Food Pantry, United Christian Parish Pantry.

All Pack 1776 scouts are strongly recommended to participate. Each scout participant will receive a cool patch!
