Over 900 Girl Scouts from the Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama “scouted” for food donations to fill community food banks across two-thirds of the state.
Because of the Girl Scouts involvement in the Scouting for Food Community Food Drive, at least 831 bags of food where donated to local food banks – over 6,000 pounds of food.
Food was collected and donated in all areas of north-central Alabama: Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Huntsville, Guntersville, Florence, Scottsboro, Gadsden, Talladega and Anniston are a few of the cities involved.

About Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama
We’re over 13,000 strong—9,500 girls and 3,800 adults in 36 counties in the state of Alabama who believe girls can change the world. It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts’ founder Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, who believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, we’ve made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions and talents.
Today we continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. Girl Scouts is the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama is a United Way partner.
