Scouting for Food

Help Fight Hunger in Your Community!

Each year, Laurel Highlands Council, in conjunction with the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and Animal Friends, hosts the Annual Scouting for Food Campaign. This relationship began as a Good Turn for Scouts to refill the food banks in the month of April as many were nearing the end of their fiscal year with low supplies of food. Each year, the annual Scouting for Food Campaign takes place in April. In 2022, Scouts, families, community members, and organizations from across the Laurel Highlands Council region collected over 56,000 pounds of food and supplies for humans and pets in need. 

Thank you for helping the hungry in your neighborhood.
