Scouting For Food
Scouting for Food
America's largest one-day food drive! Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Scouts were able to make a big impact in 2020.

And in 2021, we were able to resume traditional food collection practices and collected 1.98 million items. In 2021, 1.7 million items were collected!

Memorial Day Good Turn at Jefferson Barracks
Jefferson Barracks Memorial Day Good Turn
Scouts of all ages are invited to participate in the Memorial Day Good Turn on May 28, 2023. Check-in for Jefferson Barracks Good Turn, hosted by Gravois Trail District. Registration will be from 10:30 am until 11:30 am in front of Beasley Elementary School at the south side of the cemetery. The procession from Beasley Elementary to the cemetery will begin at 11:30 am. Upon check-in, the unit leader or designated adult will receive a map and participation ribbon. A Memorial Day Good Turn patch is available for $4.00, and segment patches are $1.00.
Participants will attend the Flag Ceremony before proceeding to the flag boxes. No one will be allowed to begin placing flags until after the ceremony has been dismissed.
About Memorial Day Good Turn
For more than seven decades, approximately 5,000 Scouts have gathered at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery before Memorial Day to decorate each of the approximately 280,000 graves with an American Flag. In its 74th year (2023), the tradition is one of the longest-running Memorial Day events within the BSA.
The public is welcome to attend the event. Scouts from across the Council assemble at Beasley Elementary School and march into the Cemetery, where they proceed to the main flagpole for assembly and ceremony honoring our fallen soldiers. A flag presentation marks the opening of our ceremony, proceeded by a guest speaker who will address the crowd. The ceremony will close with the retrieving of the flags, Taps, and Amazing Grace by the Bagpipers. Everyone will be dismissed to begin placing the flags on each grave.
It takes approximately 2 hours to complete the Good Turn, and Scouts will have placed over 200,000 flags placed on each grave.
In 1866, Jefferson Barracks was established as a National Cemetery, and today is one of the oldest interment sites of the National Cemetery Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs.
