Set a Goal – Will you collect funds or food? We can provide $3 worth of nutritious food for every $1 donated. Create a custom party page on our virtual fundraising site with your goal in mind.
Choose a Theme – Decorate boxes and bags to collect nonperishable food donations. Add signs about donations to a table at the event or request materials from the Food Bank to share about hunger during the holidays.
Encourage Donations – A simple line in invitations and reminders stating, “Donations (of food and/or funds) for the Food Bank will be gratefully accepted” with a link to your fundraising page will be effective.
Enjoy Your Event! – Take photos to share with your friends on social media. Don’t forget to tag @foodbankccs!
Bring it All Together – Gather all the funds or food collected at your event and take it to the Food Bank to have it counted or weighed. We will update you with a total of all that you did. If no receipt is needed, food can be dropped off at local collection barrels like the ones at Safeway (Please don’t leave money in the barrels).
Thank you for including the Food Bank in your holiday celebrations. Together we can make the holidays more hopeful for our neighbors in need.
