Comment on this story

Utah residents are asked to fill a bag with nonperishable food donations and leave it on their porch by 9 a.m. for collection.

Looking to go green, the donors are urged to use any bag or box on hand.

Most needed items include soup, chili, canned meats (tuna or chicken), peanut butter and boxed meals. Please no glass items.

If the local Scouts miss a home, residents can take their food donations to the nearest Harmons Grocery Store, a local pantry or the Utah Food Bank, 3150 S. 900 West. For more information, email fooddrive@utahfoodbank.org.
