Scouting For Food

2017 Results

On behalf of the Ramapo Valley District, we would like to extend a BIG thank you to all who came out to support our Annual Scouting for Food Drive. Over 60 volunteers contributed 420 service hours to handle 3,100 bags of food donations.  We collected 36,000 lbs. of non-perishables to benefit the Center for Food Action in Mahwah, Oasis in Paterson, and other local food pantries in the area.  Thank you to all Packs, Troops and Crews, the Wayne Valley High School National Honor Society and the Wyckoff-Midland Park and Allendale Rotary Clubs who reached out to their communities in order to gather a variety of non-perishable food and baby items.


Special thanks are owed to the Inserra Family of Supermarkets for their consistent support of the event, the Bergen County Law and Public Safety Institute for usage of their space as a drop-off and organization center, and the hundreds of families in Northern New Jersey who donated food items in support of the event.


Scout Leaders, please extend our thanks to the families in your units and please do not forget to record your service hours.
