Have a week-long canned food collection, where every can sentence the teacher or principal to one minute in detention, time out, or a fake jail. This can sometimes be successful enough to land the principal in detention for several hours, so be sure they can make a time commitment that day!
Donate Your Weight
Find the total weight of the kids in your classroom (or management staff at your office), and use this number to set the poundage goal for your food drive. Bring everyone in to the foodbank for a tour, and they can all be weighed at once on our warehouse scales – kids love this! Call 304-523-6029 and ask to set up a warehouse tour.
Skip A Meal
Encourage staff or members to skip lunch or dinner once this week, and donate what they would have spent to the Fund Drive. Going without for one meal is also a great way to help those who participate appreciate the importance of foodbanks to hungry families.
Fine Free Days
This fundraiser was especially successful at Marshall University’s Drinko Library: 1 can = $1 off library fines. This could also work for parking fees, etc.
