Scouting for Food Drive

Modified Drive

As is always the case, the health and safety of our members, leaders, and parents continues to be paramount.  After careful consideration of the rapidly rising COVID-19 cases, and to ensure alignment with the rapidly changing guidelines from health departments and political leaders, the leadership of the Greater St. Louis Area Council has made the decision to modify our Scouting for Food drive.

Donations this year are going to be more important now than ever before.

Ways to Give:

1) Donate through our ‘Text to Give’ campaign – Text “SCOUTFOOD” to 91999 to donate – Or  2) Drop off non-perishable food items at a collection site near you. (Search the map to find your closest location. Drop-off will run through December 13th.)

Additional details about the modified drive will be released as we have them. Thank you for all you are doing for Scouting in this challenging environment.


We are proud to be supporting the St Louis Area Foodbank, Operation Food Search, the Central Illinois Foodbank, and the Southeast Missouri Foodbank.

Your donation will remain local. For example, if your zip code is in Southern Missouri, your donation will go directly to the Southeast Missouri Foodbank. If you are from a St. Louis zip code, your donation will go to St. Louis Area Foodbank and Operation Food Search.

The following counties will see your donation stay local:

Missouri Counties: Bollinger, Butler, Cape Girardeau, Carter, Crawford, Dunklin, Franklin, Iron, Jackson, Jefferson, Lincoln, Madison, New Madrid, Pemiscot, Perry, Reynolds, Ripley, St. Charles, St. Francois, St. Louis County, St. Louis City, Ste. Genevieve, Stoddard, Warren, Washington, Wayne
