Food Drives for STEAC

STEAC Food Project collection day

The Saturday, April 11, 2020 collection day has been cancelled. Those wanting to donate food normally set aside for the Food Project can drop off at our Food Closet at 642 Hawthorn (parking lot behind St. Martin's church) on Tuesdays from 11 am to 1 pm. Food donations should be limited to non-perishables. At the present time we cannot accept fruit or produce. Donations should not be taken to the STEAC office.

Scouting for Food
Saturday, March 14, 2020

Hosted by Davis Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts

If you live in Davis and received a flyer at your house, you can help STEAC by leaving a food donation out by the curb this Saturday, March 14 by 9:00 am. Scouts will come by between 9:30 am and noon that day to pick up your donation.

If you did not receive a flyer, you may live in an area the Scouts cannot cover. However, the Scouts will be gathering and sorting food at the STEAC Food Closet on March 14, and you can still participate by delivering a bag of food to 642 Hawthorn Lane between 9:30 am and 12 noon.

The STEAC Food Closet needs include:

  • canned fruit
  • fruit and applesauce cups
  • nut-free granola bars
  • spaghetti-os
  • peanut butter
  • small containers of vegetable oil

Visit at any time to see the most needed items.

STEAC distributes almost 130,000 pounds of food annually, providing over 80,000 meals to those in need. Food drives are very important to STEAC, freeing up monetary resources that can be used on other STEAC services such as rental assistance and education programs.

Davis Scouting for Food is one of several major food drives that STEAC relies on for food donations. Last year the Davis Scouting for Food drive collected more than 10,000 pounds of healthy food. With the community's help, the Scouts would like to match or break that mark again this year.

Help local Scouts support their community by participating in their food drive for STEAC.

Thank you!
