Each year, food donations to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank bring in millions of pounds of grocery products. Food drives are a great way for schools, apartment complexes, businesses, congregations, or civic organizations to get involved in hunger relief. Schools for instance could educate their students about child hunger while at the same time helping feed the starving children and helping end child hunger.
It's easy to run a successful food drive. The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank can provide collection boxes or barrels and have available a flyer and poster to help you advertise your food drive.
