Apartment Complexes in your designated area

  • If you have apartment complex’s in your area with ‘non-solicitation’ policies, you are encouraged to contact management to see if they would be willing to put “Idaho Food Bank’ barrels in their lobby or common areas.
  • We have two large apartment complexes in our area. They were very happy to participate in ‘Scouting for Food’ and let us put “Idaho Food Bank’ barrels in their lobby. They collected a significant amount of food.
  • We suggest the barrels be available at the apartment complex for about 3 or 4 weeks. This could be before, during and after the ‘Official’ door to door drive. You schedule food pickup at any time and take the food to the Idaho Food Bank.
  • You can stop by the Food Bank to pick up the barrels and return the barrels when you deliver the food.

Have a successful Food Drive

  • For this food drive to be successful, it will require the participation of all units. We hope each unit has a successful ‘Scouting for Food experience and Ore-Ida East Gem State Area collects a record amount of food.
  • Thank you for all you do for your youth and the support you give to the Ore-Ida East District/Gem State Area and ORE-IDA Council.
