Set the date for your food drive and determine what types of food you’ll collect. Don’t forget to identify supplies that may be needed – collection boxes, signage etc.
SET YOUR GOAL
How much do you want to collect? Will you measure by boxes or pounds collected? Do you want to have a challenge with another department or class?
GET EVERYONE INVOLVED
Company management or governing boards can help motivate individuals by setting a standard for participation. Consider a match program where a company or individual matches what is collected with a cash donation.
PROMOTE YOUR DRIVE
Make signs, send e-mails – get the word out there! Make sure you let participants know what types of food products are being collected, where donations can be dropped off and how long the drive will last.
DELIVER YOUR DONATION
The Food Bank can pick up donations larger than 20 boxes. To help save on costs, we ask that donations of less than 20 boxes are delivered to the Food Bank.
