Every Scout should learn the value of hard work and earning their own way. The popcorn sale is the perfect opportunity to teach this valuable life lesson and fund the most exciting year of Scouting ever. More than 70% of the popcorn sale supports your programs and local Scouting! The Heart of America Council does all the pre-work to set up the sale, eliminating the need for your unit to research opportunities, calculate returns, create sales and promotional materials, manage a relationship with a vendor, and more.

The popcorn sale is not just about selling popcorn...It’s also about promoting Scouting!

How to Sell Popcorn

There are three different ways to sell Popcorn as a unit.

  • Show N' Sell is a direct sale that takes place outside of a local business, where Scouts interact directly with community members and encourage them to buy popcorn.
  • Take Order is an order and fulfillment process that takes place in your neighborhood, where Scouts go door-to-door and ask for popcorn orders that are fulfilled at a later date.
  • Online Sales are also available and can be used to raise funds for your unit no matter where the customer is located.

Trail's End partners with the Boy Scouts of America each year in an effort to help Scouts raise money for Scouting and Scout programing. More than 70% of the money the Scouts raise while selling popcorn goes right back into the Kansas City Scouting community. Learn more about Trail's End and how you can support Scouting today.
