One way to get people excited about your food drive is to ask for specific items. For example, you can Spread the Love by only collecting jars of peanut butter and jelly. Need more ideas? We’ve got plenty! Check out our Featured Campaigns to learn more about all of our signature and seasonal food drives.
Stop by your local supermarket or convenience store and let them know that you are collecting food for the local food bank. Do they have any non-perishable items that they could donate? It’s ok if the food is a little past the expiration date; most of the time the food is still good and will be accepted by food banks.
Now that you know the basics, it’s time to get started! Move For Hunger can provide you with the personal support, expert advice, and marketing tools that can turn a good food drive into a GREAT food drive.
