Scouting for Food



The Scout Oath states," To help other people at all times." Scouting for Food is a Council-wide initiative to help combat hunger in our community. 

Food insecurity affects millions of families every year; this past year COVID-19 added an extra struggle.

No one should ever go hungry, and the reality is, more families are having a tough time feeding their family because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Del-Mar-Va Council is committed to helping those in need...but we need your help
