Scouting for Food with the Boy Scouts

We have exciting news to share!

Waste Not received a $50,000 gift in honor of the Boy Scouts that will provide 250,000 meals. This donation came from a donor who believes in the Boy Scouts of America program and wanted to support their efforts this Saturday.

The Boy Scouts have been working to alleviate hunger in Arizona and across the country for 34 years through their Scouting for Food food drive.  We want to thank them for their efforts and ongoing commitment to improving our community!

WHAT

Help those who are hungry in our region by setting non-perishable food donations outside your door Saturday morning, February 2 before 9:00 a.m.

That morning, as part of their annual Scouting for Food drive, Boy Scouts will fan out between 9 a.m. and noon throughout the East Valley – and across the state of Arizona – to collect food donations right from your doorstep. Thanks to the efforts of these scouts. Scouting for Food is probably one of the easiest ways for area residents to make a positive impact on the well-being of their neighbors in need. Just set your donation just outside your front door and the Scouts will take it from there.

Donations will benefit members of the Association of Arizona Food Banks (AAFB), including United Food Bank, which serves residents throughout the East Valley and eastern Arizona. According to AAFB, currently one in six Arizonans lack consistent access to a sufficient quantity of affordable and nutritious foods. This includes almost one in four Arizona children, giving our state one of the nation’s highest rates of food insecurity.
