2014 GSGLA Service Saturday
Help Girl Scouts, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and Ralphs/Food 4 Less
in the fight against hunger! Participate in the Feed Your Neighbor Food Drive & Service Day, 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.
It's easy to participate

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).

Plus, the winning troops will be treated to a pre-show activity. (Winning troops must arrive at the Long Beach Arena by 4:45pm to check-in. Additional tickets can be purchased.)
