Host a Food Drive
Food Drives are an essential part of the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. Let your office, school or organization
host a food drive. We will supply and retrieve the food bank collection barrels.
Creative Ideas For A Successful Food Drive
Create a competition between classrooms, departments or floors to see who raises the most. Give the winning team an incentive such as a pizza party, casual dress day, gift certificates donated by local businesses and so on…
Encourage teams to choose a mascot, motto, team name or cheers. The sillier, the better! Assign specific foods from the needed items list to each team. Give a special prize to the group that donates a well-balanced collection of foods.
Designate theme days. Fill a playpen with infant formula on Monday. Plant a “garden” in the lobby with canned vegetable on Tuesday.
Let your staff or students wear casual dress if they meet their food drive goals.
