Host a Food Drive
WWCM’s food pantry is stocked with donations from individuals and community groups. We appreciate the contributions we receive from food drives! Businesses, service groups, youth groups, churches, and other community organizations often host food drives, to encourage their members to contribute!
Use your imagination and make it fun!
Place grocery bags at every employee or student desk – or every neighbor’s front door!
Throw a pizza party, school dance, or other event and charge a can or bag of food for admission.
Create competitions with lots of categories – largest individual donation, most protein, most unusual food, or match your weight with pounds of food.
Have Macaroni Mondays, Tuna Tuesdays, Peanut Butter Week, to encourage donations of high protein foods.
Display daily or weekly totals in high traffic areas.
