The Boy Scouts of America’s annual Scouting for Food drive begins on Friday, October 30, when Scouts place a reminder on your front door. This year, the Scouts will not be going door-to-door to collect bags of food. Instead, Boy Scouts of America created an online platform to help you make a donation.
Jeff Loutsch, Scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 45 in Milbank, says, “100 percent of your donation stays at our local food pantry. The pantry will use the money to purchase food and supplies for families in the Milbank area.”
“A Scout promises to help other people at all times,” Loutsch says, “and there is no better way to show our Scouting spirit than by participating in the annual Scouting for Food drive. This food drive is instrumental in restocking the shelves at our food pantry and helping them to get ready for the holidays and the long winter ahead.”
Scouting for Food is the leading service program for Boy Scouts of America and is a part of the national BSA program — Good Turn for America.

Milbank Boy Scout Troop 45 is funded in part by Grant County Combined Appeal.
