Food Bank of Alaska believes that no one deserves to be hungry.
Since 1979, we have been securing donated food for nonprofit agencies to distribute to hungry
Scouts have goal to raise 60,000 lbs. of food on April 12th
Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts across our community will be
collecting food for this year’s “Scouting for Food” drive on Saturday, April 12 from 10 am to
6:00 pm at all Fred Meyer stores in Anchorage, Eagle River, and the Mat-Su Valley. All food will
be distributed through Food Bank of Alaska to hungry people in these communities.
Scouting for Food is one of the biggest drives of the year to benefit hungry children, families,
and seniors in Alaska. Scouts will also distribute fliers about the food drive in local neighborhoods and return on
Saturday the 12th to pick up any donations left on the doorstep. Says Food Bank of Alaska Executive
Director Michael Miller, “We really appreciate partnering with these hard-working young
philanthropists and encourage the community to support Scouting for Food.” After the food drive,
scouts work to sort the food donations and get them out onto Food Bank of Alaska's shelves. Thanks
to partners AARP, Carlile Transportation Systems, and Fred Meyer.
