Scouting for Food

United Food Bank is able to provide 300,000 pounds of food per week because of our food and grocery partners as well as those who sponsor food drives

Scouting for Food will be on February 3, 2018


Scouting for Food is an annual food drive held by the Boy Scouts Grand Canyon Chapter. Every year, troops pick a date to go out into neighborhoods all over the valley to collect food from the community and then bring it to their local food banks.

The food collected will feed thousands of people in need in the East Valley and Eastern Arizona. We could not be more thankful for their efforts!

Please call Melissa Forrester at (480) 398-4464 or [email protected] to make the arrangements.

Here are the Guidelines for Scouting for Food if your Troop is participating:

• Pick up bins at United Food Bank before Saturday’s event.
• Please enter on Westwood and go east on Birchwood to Nina Drive – Do not enter on Nina Drive and block Broadway
• United Food Bank will open at 8:00 a.m. and the last delivery time is 2:00 p.m.
• Bin tags will be available upon arrival at United Food Bank
• Please return all unused bins and pallets. (these cost money and are needed back.) Thanks for your help with this!

Please note we are not accepting citrus this year for Scouting for Food

Thank you for your support!
