When planning your food drive, do your best to plan ahead. Ask yourself these questions: When do you want to run your food drive, and for how long? What kind of supplies will you need (posters, collection bins, etc.)?
Set a Goal
Set a goal for how much food you’d like to collect. Think about challenging your food drive participants with a “healthy” competition. You can also provide a theme like "Feed the Hungry Children" or "Help End Child Hunger."
Promote and Advertise
Promote your food drive with flyers, emails, posters, social media postings, etc. Be sure to include when the food drive is taking place, what kind of food can be donated and where the food should be dropped off.
