Utah Food Bank is “going green” and asks that you utilize any bag or box you already have at your home.
“With 15 percent of Utah’s population, or 423,000 individuals, unsure where their next meal will come from,” says Utah Food Bank, “our mission of Fighting Hunger Statewide sadly never ends.” Scouting for Food is one way to help, and it has done so for 30 consecutive years!
Food banks accept commercially packaged, non-perishable food items like chili, stew, soup, peanut butter, boxed meals, canned fish, canned meats and canned fruits. As always, they appreciate products low in sodium, sugar, and corn syrup, but nothing in glass containers (if you saw the tons of food, you’d understand the mess that glass causes when it gets crushed, not to mention the hazard it poses to volunteer food sorters).
Utah Food Bank turns $1 donated into $7.35 worth of goods and services!
If Scouts miss your home, please bring your food to the nearest Harmons Grocery Store or your local pantry. You can also take your Scouting for Food door hanger into your local Smith’s Food & Drug Stores between March 15th and 18th to donate at check stands!
If your Cub Scout pack did not receive a stack of Scouting for Food flyers to hand out, or need more, please visit your nearest Council Service Center for more copies. You can also download and print the flyer above.
