Food Drive Tips & Tricks
Set Goals for Your Food Drive
Before you distribute your flyers, make sure you set a goal of what you'd like to raise as an organization for your food drive. Set those goals high! Some of our favorites are: three items or dollars per student/employee or 100 pounds of food total.
Food Drive Competition Ideas
Nothing sets a food drive into overdrive like some friendly competition. Whether it's between departments, grades, students or individual employees -- implementing a food drive competition is the surest way to see your food drive be successful. Below are some of our favorite competitions we have seen, so far:
Principal/Boss for the Day: for every item donated, students/employees earn a ticket into a drawing. At the end of the food drive, a name is chosen and that person is Principal or Boss for the Day (or even half the day). That comes complete with lunch with the actual principal/boss, of course!
Pizza Party: nothing gets people in competition mode quite like a pizza party. Award the winning class/department with lunch on the organization. Not only is it delicious, but a great team-building moment.
Costume Punishment: a punishment for a prize? We say, yes! If your company/school hits their food drive goal, the boss/principal has to dress in a funny costume for the day. The thought of the head honcho dressed as a chicken will make memories for a lifetime.
Food Sculptures: Which group can make the best "sculpture" with their food donations. Can your class stack boxes of noodles to make a dinosaur? What food does your department need to design your logo? Get creative! The best sculpture wins a prize.
Market Your Food Drive
A food drive is a great marketing tool for your company/organization. Make sure to not only distribute information to parents, but let the local media know and attach some pictures. Use your company/school newsletter and emails to spread the word and motivate others with your progress.
