Feed Your Neighbor
In Girl Scouts, we take action—that means taking community service to another level. The GSGLA Feed Your Neighbor Food Drive & Service Month 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 in LA County (approximately one in seven) are food-insecure—the highest number ever recorded in the United States—and connect with our community and organizations to fight hunger, and take action to help GSGLA collect food for area food banks and pantries.
Feed Your Neighbor 2019 took place April 1–30. See you next year!
Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors are encouraged to join the Service Squad! Contact food pantries in your area to directly arrange for a shift. See below for a list of prefered locations.
Inspire sister Girl Scouts to participate! Take a photo of yourself volunteering and post it on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtags #GSGLA, #FightingHunger, and #GirlScouts.
Please note: Volunteer opportunities typically include food sorting and packing, and generally have an age requirement. This is a great opportunity for Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors!
