As Scouts, we know how fortunate we are to have a warm meal every night — whether around the campfire or at the kitchen table. And we know that not everyone is so lucky.

That’s the genesis of Scouting for Food, the annual food-collection drive run by the Great Southwest Council. It’s another reminder to our local communities that Scouts are here, doing good turns.

Scouting for Food will take place on February 3, 2018. We have partnered up with Smith’s Food & Drug and will set up in front of the stores to collect non-perishable food and cash donations. We have setup a SignUpGenius signup sheet with all Smith’s Food & Drug locations in the Albuquerque metro area. Units are asked to sign up for a 3 hour time slot at the location of their choice. If your first location is not available, please consider covering another Smith’s location. Remember, we are doing a good turn for our community and would like to have all Smith’s stores covered by units. Last year we had a record number of units participate, don’t be that unit that didn’t help out this year. Below is the link to the SignUpGenius. If you have any questions, please contact Bryan Nigg at 505-270-7411 or at

All food and cash donations are given to Roadrunner Food Bank and help needy families throughout the council’s borders.
