Different councils run their Scouting for Food drives at different times of the year. National Capital Area Council usually does theirs in the fall. Ditto Last Frontier Council, which will be passing out flyers Nov 2 and collecting cans Nov 9. Sam Houston Area Council passes out flyers last weekend in January and collects cans first weekend in February. I wonder what month is the MOST effective time to do it....do you rake in more donations early in the fall? Or more in the middle of winter, after the holidays are over and done with? I wonder which council has the BIGGEST Scouting for Food drive....
I was reading an article about Scouting for Food... http://www.newstribune.com/news/local/story/2019/mar/10/scouting-food-nets-more-10000-pounds-goods-samaritan-center/769227/ The last line of that story jumped out at me: "He said someone also gave away a $100 bill Saturday, adding the amount of cash received in total was "pretty substantial," though he did not have an exact count." If your scouts are participating in a Scouting for Food activity, and someone hands them a "pretty substantial" donation, who gets to keep the money? Is it a donation to the scout unit, or a donation to the local food bank? What do you think?
