Planning a Food Drive

Whether you’re an individual, a school, a company or a group, anyone can easily organize a food drive.

What should the focus be?
Anything you want:

  • Fill a truck or a bus or a car
  • Bring a food item as admission for an event
  • Build a theme around an event or season
  • Gather as much food as you can in an hour, a day, a week
  • Challenge another group
  • Let your creativity run wild – there are a lot of possibilities.
