Why Didn't Our Unit Get A Scouting For Food Ribbon Last Year, 2020?

If you didn't get the 2020 Scouting for food ribbon, it means we didn't receive or hear about your food drive. There is still time. Email Gina Carson, the contact on this page, with your unit #, how much food you collected in pounds (lbs), and where you donated the food. We will send you out your ribbon immediately.
