10 Food Drive Event Ideas


Make Food the Fee

If your school, church or company is sponsoring a sporting event, bake sale or dance, make a food donation part of the cost of admission. Be sure to give everyone advance notice, and provide a list of food items that are most in demand like:

  • infant formula
  • shelf-stable milk
  • baby food
  • peanut butter
  • paper products
  • cleaning supplies
  • juice boxes
  • canned vegetables
  • canned fruit
  • canned tuna
  • canned stew
  • canned soups (those containing meat are best)
  • boxed cereal
  • oatmeal
  • beans
