As an organization, the Boy Scouts of America teaches youth the value of helping others and to give back to their communities.  By collecting food for people in need, Scouts are fulfilling the Scout Oath and Slogan of "doing a good turn daily" and "helping other people."


Your participation can make a difference.  Today, more than 1 billion people in the world live in conditions of poverty and alomost one in every five children in the United States lives in poverty.  In the United States, poverty significantly impacts hunger with an estimated 13 million people going to bed hungry each night.  Scouting continues its legacy of combating poverty and other social issues while creating leaders of tomorrow through its Good Turn for America initiative.
