Scouting for Food photos

In November each year the BSA units in Carbondale join together to participate in the annual Boy Scouts of America Scouting for Food drive and collect food items, which are distributed to the Good Samaritan food pantry (http://www.cdaleinterfaith.org) and the Community Cupboard.

The Kaskaskia District of the Greater St. Louis Area Council collects over 35,000 food items each year. The items are distributed to 20 food pantries in the 6 southernmost western counties in Illinois -- Jackson, Perry, Johnson, Alexander, Union and Pulaski.
