Community Action Services and Food Bank and Tabitha’s Way Local Food Pantry, together with the Utah Food Bank, partnered with the Boy Scouts of America to help Fight Hunger Statewide during the 32nd annual Scouting for Food, Saturday, March 17. This food drive comes at a critical time when supplies at Community Action Services and Tabitha’s Way are beginning to thin following the holiday season. This effort has provided the equivalent of over 18 million meals statewide since 1997 alone, and scouts hoped to hit the 20 million meal mark with this year’s efforts.
All donations will be delivered to Community Action Services and Food Bank at 815 S. Freedom Blvd., in Provo, or at Tabitha’s Way Local Food Pantry at 920 E. State Rd, Suite C, American Fork. If you missed this year’s drive, donations can be dropped off at either location.
“The food these scouts collecting will have a great impact on our neighbors and friends, many of whom may very well be classmates or friends of these scouts,” said Karen McCandless of Community Action Services and Food Bank.
“It is so rewarding to see these youth and their leaders all working together to help fight hunger within their own communities. You can’t tell if someone is hungry just by looking at them — they look a lot like you and me, and they need our help,” said Al Switzler of Tabitha’s Way.
