Incentivize Your Food Drive!

July 27, 2016

Looking for a way to increase the amount of food you're going to collect at your next food drive? A litte friendly competition always helps! Offering an incentive or prize is a surefire way to encourage people to donate. Here are a few ways that you can inspire your coworkers, classmates, and/or customers to donate more food than they normally would!


It's simple -- anyone who donate a can or box of food  is entered for a chance to win a prize! The more you donate, the more chances you have to win.

Employee Perks

If you are hosting a food drive at your workplace, the employee or department who collects the most food wins a day off, free lunch, or a prime parking space!


Offer your customers a discount on their purchase in exchange for a donation. It's a great way to increase the amount of food you'll collect and ensure that your customers will come back again!

Free Admission

Instead of charging admission to a concert, sporting event, play, etc., ask the attendees to bring a bag of food to gain entry into the event.

School Spirit

If you are holding a food drive at school, promise the students that anyone who brings in a donation will receive a free homework pass, extra credit, or offer a pizza party to the classroom that collects the most food!
