SKOUT AND SF-MARIN FOOD BANK TEAM UP FOR NATIONAL GRILLED CHEESE DAY

Skout is all about connections, whether it’s connecting people with new friends or connecting with our community. To celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day – April 12! – Skout is partnering with our local SF-Marin Food Bank to show how we can donate – both time and money – to benefit our community.

Did you know that 1 in 4 kids in San Francisco and Marin counties is at risk of hunger? Everyday the Food Bank provides healthy snacks to 10,000 growing kids via its Morning Snack Program.

On National Grilled Cheese Day, Skout will donate to the Food Bank every time you give a Grilled Cheese Gift to another Skouter, until we have reached our goal of providing healthy snacks for 10,000 growing kids. So please – serve up Grilled Cheese Gifts for FREE to all your Skout friends on Sunday, April 12!

Giving away free Grilled Cheese Gifts is just one easy way for you to donate and give back to the community.

“But I don’t have a lot of money.” If you donate just $1, the Food Bank can distribute $6 worth of food to the community — enough for three meals.

“You don’t understand – I don’t have ANY money.” You can still help! Volunteer at the Food Bank or organize a food drive.

“The Food Bank seems cool, but I don’t live in the San Francisco Bay Area.” Tap here to find a local food bank at which to volunteer and/or donate.

In fact, in just three hours of volunteering, Skout HQ packed 3,200 pounds of food that were delivered by the SF-Marin Food Bank to members of the community.
