Scouting for Food | Utah Food Bank

Please join local Scouts as they help 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.

How to Donate

There are 3 easy ways that you can help Scouting For Food.

Leave a Bag on Your Porch March 16, 2019 by 9:00am

Hundreds of Scouts will be out-and-about collecting food that has been left on porches beginning at 9:00am. So grab a grocery bag that’s hiding in your cupboard, fill it with food, & leave it on your porch by 9:00am on March 16, 2019.

Drop Off Your Donation at Your Nearest Harmons Grocery Store

Whether you forgot to put out your donation by 9:00am or Scouts accidentally passed by your house, you can still support this great cause. Just take your donation to your nearest Harmons Grocery Store, your local pantry, or the Utah Food Bank.

Make Cash Donations at Your Neighborhood Smith’s Food & Drug Store

That’s right! You can also support this event by making a cash donation at your local Smith’s Food & Drug Store. And these donations can even be made at registers! It’s that easy. Be sure to do it between March 15 & March 18, 2019
