Scouting for Food is the largest food collection event in the nation. Scouts go door-to-door collecting non-perishable food items for the less fortunate. The food is then distributed to local food pantries and assistance agencies across Circle Ten Council. Generally, Elm Fork participates the first & second weekend of February in the early morning
