Food drives are an ideal way for individuals, schools, clubs, and groups to help supply the non-perishable items that are always needed to combat food scarcity!

The role

Whether your Food Drive collects 6 items or 600, all donations make a difference to someones life!

Hosting a food drive will require you to do some research, decide on a charity to support, & you will need to plan out how you will go about collecting items & getting them to the charity.

Will you hold an event? Run a competition? Do a social media campaign? Leave donation boxes somewhere easy for people to add to? Design and display some posters and flyers?

It's completely up to you!
