On Monday, Jan. 25, Bank of Utah, along with Arctic Circle, Red Hanger, the Utah National Guard and Smith’s, joined forces with Boy Scouts of America Crossroads of the West Council to kick off the 35th annual Scouting for Food Drive in Utah. This year marks a new era for Scouting For Food in Utah, with new partners and new ways to donate and collect items.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many hardships to families in our communities. This partnership is an effort to help the scouts collect as much food as possible to help struggling families. You are invited to join us in collecting and dropping off nonperishable food at community donation sites, including all Bank of Utah branches and drive-thru windows. The food items will then be delivered to food pantries and food banks across the state.
Collection and Drop-Off Sites:
Through Feb. 12, you can pick up bags during regular business hours at:
- All Bank of Utah locations
- All Arctic Circle locations
- All Red Hanger locations
You can drop off donations at Bank of Utah and Red Hanger. You can also participate in Scouting for Food Day, Feb. 6, when scout troops will be asking for food donations at more than 50 Utah Smith’s stores.
Suggested Nonperishable Food Items
- Canned fruits and vegetables
- Canned beed stew
- Canned chili
- Canned meats
- Peanut butter
- Boxed meals
