Perhaps the greatest benefit is the auto-shipping function of Global Food Share. Get people signed up to receive a bucket a month of healthy freeze-dried fruit, or get them working toward an appropriate amount of emergency food storage by buying just one bucket of ready to eat meals a month. We ship directly to them and your Troop keeps raising money every single month.
Quick Math: If every Scout in your Troop were to get his family to replace one hundred dollars of their grocery bill each month with healthy, nutritious, long lasting food from Global Food Share, your Troop would earn $300 per year for each participating family multiplied by the total number of Scout families. If every Scout also got two of their neighbors, friends, or extended family to buy half that amount every month it would double the funds raised. At $600 per year raised per Scout, a Troop of only ten (10) Scouts could raise more than $6,000 per year without asking anyone to spend more than they already do on groceries. Even more valuable is the knowledge that with just this effort, your Troop is feeding more than 10,500 meals to the world’s most in need. Impressive.
