Host a Themed Food Drive AND Packing Event: The Food Group

March 4, 2013

in Ages 12 and under, Ages 12+, Ages 16+, Ages 18+, Homeless and Hunger Needs

Interested in making a difference in your community? Hold a themed food, household, or hygiene drive along with a volunteer packing event at the close of the drive at your own organization. The donations will be made with a specific theme in mind so that special kits or packages can be created with the donations at the volunteer packing event. This volunteer opportunity is perfect for faith communities, work teams, and youth groups. The packages or kits that your organization assembles will be distributed to EFN’s food shelf partners.

Themed Drive Ideas:

“Birthday Bags” (small toys, stickers, treats, cards, etc.)
“Breakfast Bundles” (healthy breakfast items for kids)
“Comfort Kits” (hygiene items like toothpaste, lotion, chapstick, etc.)
“Back to School Bags” (backpacks filled with school supplies and healthy snacks for kids)
“Baby Bags” (baby food, formula, diapers, baby wipes, bottles, etc.)
“Kid Friendly Kits” (peanut butter and jelly, fruit snacks, crackers, juice boxes, etc.)
