2016 GSGLA Feed Your Neighbor Service Week
April 23-30, 2016
Help Girl Scouts, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and Ralphs/Food 4 Less in the fight against hunger! Participate in Feed Your Neighbor Week, learn about the hunger crisis, and do something about it.
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.
The public can participate by:
On Saturday, April 30, drop off goods with a Girl Scout troop stationed at their nearest Ralphs/Food 4 Less on Saturday, April 30.
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 April 23, 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: GSGLA23 (case sensitive). Registration closes April 20. 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.
- Sign up for a Ralphs/Food 4 Less food drive booth on April 30. Registration closes April 25.
Step 3 - Submit your completed evaluation form(s) to the your local GSGLA Service Center and pick up your Feed Your Neighbor Food Drive & Service Day patch(es).
