Scouting For Food

When: March 16, 2019
Where: Everywhere in Utah!

Please join the local Scouts as they help us fight hunger statewide by filling a bag with nutritious non-perishable food donations, then leave it on your porch by 9:00 a.m. on March 16, 2019. Utah Food Bank asks that you utilize any bag or box you already have at your home. If you live in an area that receives a bag in lieu of a door hanger, please utilize the bag you receive! Look for a reminder door hanger (or yellow bag in some areas) during the week leading up to the event!

We accept commercially packaged non-perishable food items and appreciate products low in sodium, sugar and corn syrup. Most needed items include soup, chili, canned meats (tuna/chicken), peanut butter and boxed meals. Please no glass items.

If the local Scouts missed your home, please bring your food to the nearest Harmons Grocery Store, your local pantry or Utah Food Bank.

You can also take your door hanger in to your neighborhood Smith’s Food & Drug Stores and donate financially at registers between March 15, 2019 and March 18, 2019.

If you have further questions please contact fooddrive@utahfoodbank.org.
