2017 CHH FOOD DRIVE - web header

During the month of March, help the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts of San Diego and Imperial Counties (Scouting for Food) and LDS Churches of San Diego along with local businesses provide much-needed food to the San Diego Food Bank and North County Food Bank and the people we serve.

Neighborhood Food Drive Collections

Boy Scout and Cub Scout troops will be going door-to-door in local neighborhoods asking the community to set out bags of nonperishable food items that will be picked up and delivered to the Food Bank.

To celebrate the Boy Scouts of America’s 100th Anniversary, local troops along with the LDS Churches of San Diego and local business partners have set a goal to collect 100,000 pounds!

Please support the Community Helping Hands Food Drive!
