Food Drive Tips

Tips for a Successful Food Drive

Make it Fun
Create excitement before the drive by touring the Food Bank.
Challenge another department in your company/school or another corporation.
Have themed days to bring in food, i.e. T.G.I.F. (Take Groceries in Friday).

Set a Goal
Aim as high as you want!
Keep a running tally to announce when you are getting close to your goal.

Get the word out
Display posters in high traffic areas.
Publicize the food drive in emails, flyers and bulletins.
Mention the food drive at your meetings.

Create Incentives for the Winning team
Give away prizes or host a party for the winners.
Give awards in fun categories, i.e., most peanut butter collected, or most enthusiastic collectors.
