SFF Recommended Safety Guidelines:

The need for food in our community is at an all-time high, but we want to ensure the safety of all of our Scouts during the Scouting for Food Drive. Please share these guidelines with your units and families.

  1. Prior to organizing your unit Scouting for Food drive:
    1. Leaders, be in contact with your Charter Partner as unit activity restrictions may be in place.
    2. As always, participation in Scouting activities is up to the discretion of parents and guardians.
    3. Please contact your food pantry location to ensure they will receive unsorted food donations as it is not recommended to have a group gathering to sort.
  2. Determine if your unit wants to do a traditional door to door collection or try a safer method like a drive through collection event or a donation drop off box at a community facility. The doorknob hangers will have a black space for you to put labels or hand write your plans to share with the community.
  3. Recommendations by the Depart. Of Health can change at any time.  In some cases, you may be required to wear a mask, practice safe social distancing, and carry hand sanitizer.  BE PREPARED FOR ANYTHING.  Do NOT touch your face or facemasks before properly washing your hands or using hand sanitizer.
  4. For both the doorknob hanger drop offs and the food pick up, please participate as Family/household units only in a vehicle.
  5. Doorknobs are considered a high-risk point of contact. Please only touch the paper of the doorknob hanger when placing and avoid touching the doorknob itself.
  6. Adult supervision is strongly recommended through every step.
