Some ideas for keeping the food drive interesting over time: 

  • Ask for food items by season or holiday - seasonal bulletin templates are attached.
  • Collect soup and chili in the winter months
  • Ask for green vegetables for St. Patrick’s Day
  • Provide breakfast in the summer for kids when they don’t get breakfast at school.
  • Take your youth group, women’s group, or other team or class to the Food Bank for a volunteer activity.  Bring back a report to the larger group or congregation on how the Food Bank and this food drive impacts the community for good.
