Scouting for food

Filed under: Community — kirk @ 6:33 pm

Spent the morning in 20 degree F. weather walking several blocks with my son to hang flyers on doors here in Columbia. The reason: Scouting for food.
Scouting for Food” is Scouting’s community stewardship project aimed at addressing the problem of hunger in the community in which we live and work.

When I was a kid, we lived in rural Missouri. You knew everyone. Meet a car on the road and don’t wave hello, and you’d be considered rude or at least as having a bad day.

My kids, however, live in a world where we’re lucky to know who lives next door. That’s why I’m happy to be involved in things like this scouting project. It may be one of the few ways to get kids involved in community support.
