DRAPER — The 26th annual Scouting for Food drive will be held Saturday.
The drive will help stock the shelves of Utah Food Bank and emergency food pantries statewide.
Approximately 100 airmen and soldiers and more than 20 Utah National Guard vehicles will assist Boy Scouts who will go house to house to gather donated food items for local food banks.
Residents are asked to put commercially packaged, nonperishable food items outside their front doors by 9 a.m. Products low in sodium/sugar/corn syrup are appreciated. Perishable food and food packaged in glass cannot be accepted.
Guard members will be overseeing drop-off locations across Utah and will assist in transporting food items from these and other locations to the Ogden, Salt Lake, St. George and Provo community warehouses.
For more information on the food drive and drop-off locations, visit www.utahfoodbank.org/Scouting.
