About This Event

Hundreds of local boy scouts will canvass several Amarillo neighborhoods Saturday, March 25th collecting food donations door-to-door during the 2023 Scouting for Food “Good Turn” program. The annual event benefitting High Plains Food bank, is traditionally one of the largest spring food drives in the Texas Panhandle.

Everyone is encouraged to donate food or funds to support High Plains Food Bank through Scouting for Food, even if their neighborhood was unassigned to a unit.

Troops and packs will inform residents within their assigned neighborhoods of where to leave donations, pick-up times, etc. All other Texas Panhandle residents may support Scouting for Food by:

  • Donating online at
  • Delivering food or fund donations to High Plains Food Bank, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and designating that your donations are for “Scouting for Food”.
  • Deliver food and fund donations to the High Plains Food Bank Warehouse on Saturday, March 25th from 9 a.m. to Noon.

High Plains Food Bank’s top food needs include peanut butter, pasta/sauce, boxed dinners, and canned items including soups, fruits, vegetables, and meats.

To confirm that your neighborhood is scheduled for pickup, please call the Golden Spread Council of Boy Scouts of America office at (806) 358-6500. Once the troops and packs finish collecting non-perishable food from their assigned neighborhoods, they will deliver all donations to HPFB. Food is weighed as it arrives, from approximately 9:00 a.m. to Noon, with peak activity around 10 a.m.
