The good turn project is part of a nationwide appeal undertaken by The Boy Scouts, which has more than 3.5 million members. Food City has served as the sponsor in the Sequoyah Council since its inception in 1988, provided the bags as well as physical and financial support. More than 5.3 million cans have been collected in the 26 previous Scouting for Food campaigns.
The food is distributed in the communities in which it is collected. Many food banks report stocks from Scouting for Food campaigns lasting up to six months.
