Scouting for Food
“Scouting for Food” is Scouting’s community stewardship project aimed at addressing the problem of hunger in the community in which we live and work. Scouting for Food is a food collection effort carried out by Boy Scouts, Venturers, Girl Scouts, and Cub Scouts from across the country. Food drives are organized at the district level and are designed to help the local community. Troop 1's efforts serve to directly help the Northboro community. Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts distribute food drive donation requests (flyers, notes, and/or bags) throughout a designated area and then return to collect plastic grocery bags filled with donated food. The bags are then collected, sorted and stored at our local food pantry by Troop 1 Scouts. Scouting for Food is a project rooted in the very foundation of the Scouting movement. Through initiative and hard work, the Boy Scouts have developed a framework that can help local food pantries feed tens of thousands of needy local residents with emergency aid. It is up to the people of your community to make Scouting for Food a success. Here is a video of a life a can during one of the recent Scouting for Food events.
Troop 1 is currently planning an exciting High Adventure Trip to BSA Seabase Florida in the summer of 2017. The Troop has slots for two crews to attend the week of July 23. The Scouts unanimously expressed an interested in Scuba diving, and we will participate in the Scuba Adventure. To prepare for this, most of the Scouts and a few of the adults completed their SSI Open Water certification in August. Additionally, the crews are already planning Fundraising to support their adventure of a lifetime.
