Feed Your Neighbor

Help Girl Scouts in the fight against hunger!

In Girl Scouts, we take action – that means taking community service to another level. The GSGLA Feed Your Neighbor Food Drive & Service Day is our council-wide take action project, where girls not only help others, but understand and address the roots of the problem. Through our Feed Your Neighbor campaign, girls learn about the hunger crisis and do something about it.

Girls discover why 17.2 million households (approximately one in seven) were food insecure -- the highest number ever recorded in the United States, connect with your community and organizations that are working to fight hunger, and take action and help GSGLA collect food for area food banks and pantries. Check out pictures from 2016 Feed Your Neighbor Event here.

  • Hold a food drive booth at a Ralphs/Food 4 Less location or a location of your choice—you must contact the location's management to set up your booth individually.
