Food drives are very important to us and are an easy way for organizations to support us. Every year numerous Girl and Boy Scout Troops, Churches, Elementary, Middle, and High Schools conduct food drives on our behalf. Furthermore, many companies do the same. We have collection barrels that can be placed within your organization. We also provide shopping bags for collection.
We have a standard flyer called “Here’s What We Need” that can be stapled to the shopping bags so that potential donors will know just what we need, however, if you contact us just before beginning your drive we will provide customized lists that will focus on exactly the foods we need at the time of your project.
If your group would like to deliver the food you have collected we are pleased to put on a program that explains our organization and even let your group help stock the shelves. We have a presentation and activities that allow younger Girl Scouts to earn their Philanthropy Badge.
Please contact us if you are interested in conducting a food drive.
