Feed Your Neighbor
GSGLA Feed Your Neighbor Service Month
Help Girl Scouts, Ralphs/Food 4 Less, and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank in the fight against hunger! Participate in Feed Your Neighbor Service Month, learn about the hunger crisis, and do something about it—starting with our Service Squad opportunity for girls ages 14+ on April 1. (Register here! Password: GSGLA4.)
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.
Take action and help GSGLA collect food for area food banks and pantries.
You can check out pictures from last year's Feed Your Neighbor Service Week here.
Girl Scouts can participate by:
Step 1 - Review/download the Feed Your Neighbor Patch Program below and select the appropriate Girl Scout level program sheet.
Step 2 - Complete three requirements as part of the council-wide service project day (food drive booth or volunteer at food bank):
- Sign up for the Service Squad (14+) at the LA Food Bank sorting and packaging on Saturday, April 1, 2017, 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. (This is not a feeding the homeless/helpless opportunity. The LA Food Bank needs volunteers to help package and sort food at their warehouse.) Password: GSGLA4. Registration closes March 29, 2017. Each individual needs to register for the event with the same link and password, so we can expedite the check-in process. Each individual will receive a confirmation email with all the logistics and an e-ticket like a boarding pass. Participants will need to bring the release form and the e-ticket on the day of the service project.
- 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.
Step 3 - Submit your completed evaluation form(s) to the your local GSGLA Service Center and pick up your Feed Your Neighbor Service Month patch(es).
