Hold A Food Drive
WOULD YOU LIKE TO HOLD A FOOD DRIVE?
The Food Bank would love to help you!
Non-perishable donated foods will help the Food Bank provide food to nearly 400 member agencies such as soup kitchens, food pantries, emergency shelters, day care and adult day care centers, group homes, summer camps and snack programs.
A successful food drive takes both good organization and promotion. Select a coordinator for your efforts. Choose a date and decide how long you will run your food drive. It can be a one day event or can last as long as a month. Decide on how you will promote your food drive. Make signs, make phone calls, have contests but whatever you decide to do … HAVE FUN!
Some suggested non-perishable foods:
Canned/ dry beans
Macaroni and cheese
Canned spaghetti, ravioli
Milk: canned or powdered
Juices: canned or in plastic bottles
Canned fruits and vegetables
Cereals: hot or cold
You may also wish to have a theme for your food drive … such as baby needs … (diapers, formula, lotions, shampoo) OR personal care items for all ages, OR items for a Thanksgiving or Christmas.
Be creative … there is no right or wrong way to have a food drive.
