2 Hosting Your Food and Fund Drive Food and Fund Drives are easy! Your company, organization, friends and family can play a vital role in ending hunger by sponsoring a food and fund drive. We work with you to help plan, promote and manage your campaign. We provide you with the tools you need collection boxes, coin canisters and posters. With help from businesses like yours, we are able to distribute more than 346,000 meals a week through over 450 Partner Programs. Food security for all is our goal, and we need your help to achieve it. Tips for Hosting a Successful Food Drive Ideas for Collecting Food Most Needed Items What Your Gift Can Do Hosting a Food Drive Page 3 Page 3-4 Page 5 Page 5 Page 6-7 1

3 Tips for Hosting a Successful Food Drive Select specific dates and locations. Determine what time frame would be most effective in maximizing participation: a day, a week or a month. Then decide where your event will take place your local office, building lobby or a special event or function. Organize. A successful food drive often depends on those who organize it, so be sure to enlist the help of people who are dedicated, enthusiastic and good at motivating others. Set a goal. Reaching for a target can help build momentum. Remember fifteen pounds of food can feed a family of four for one day. Promote your food drive. Promote your event early and often. Display posters in highly visible locations. Send out s, text messages and voice mails. Include reminders in newsletters or on your website or social media. Tips for Hosting Food Drives Make it easy to donate. Put collection boxes and contribution canisters in high-traffic, easily accessible locations. If your facility is large, consider having more than one drop-off point. Pack up your donations. If you do not use Food Bank collection boxes, pack your donated food into sturdy boxes that aren t too heavy and securely tape the bottoms. If the Food Bank is picking up the donated food, please gather it into one location that is accessible by a dolly. Celebrate your success! Share the results with everyone. Send out thank you notes, throw a party and recognize those who contributed. 2

6 Most Needed items Most Needed Items While we welcome all donated food, some of the items most needed by the Food Bank include: Canned meats (tuna, chicken, etc.) Canned or packaged fruit Canned or boxed meals, soups and stews 100% fruit juice Peanut butter Rice, pasta and sauces Baby cereal and formula Non-food items such as toothpaste, shampoo, soap, laundry detergent and other basic necessities are also accepted at the Food Bank. The Food Bank cannot accept home-canned, previously opened or homemade foods, unlabeled products or products not in its original packaging, perishable food, alcohol, medicine or sodas. 5 $1 Provides four meals to those in need in one of the 24 counties we serve. What your gift can do When you donate to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, every 1.2 pounds of food donated can provide 1 meal to those in need; however, due to the Food Bank s ability to purchase food in bulk, your $1 donation can provide the equivalent of 4 meals. $21 Can feed a family for a week through the Food Bank s resources. $280 Purchases a pallet of fresh produce to be distributed from the Food Bank s warehouse.
