You're not the first person or group to hold a food drive, and chances are a regional food bank in your area has lots of interesting suggestions based on past campaigns that will give ideas you can refine and customize to fit your circumstances. Some organizations even provide handy program kits you can use to plan and promote your drive. If your food drive ideas turn out to be a roaring success, share your strategy with your food bank representative. What worked well for you will probably work for someone else, too. After all, sharing is what it's all about.
