If you love being outdoors or if you’re looking to get fit for a good cause, then these End Summer Hunger food drive ideas are for you!
- Race for hunger – First, choose whether you want to walk, run, swim, or ride. Tell your friends and family that you’re racing to End Summer Hunger, and ask them to pledge a donation for each kilometer. Keep track of your distance and donations, and take photos along the way to share your journey!
- Picnic at the Park or Summer BBQ – Gather your friends and family for a day outdoors! Find a place, choose a theme, and put together a playlist. Ask each person you invite to bring something to share at the picnic as well as extra items to donate to the food bank. You can also take a few minutes during the event to raise awareness of summer hunger.
- Scavenger Hunt – This event takes a bit of planning, but it can be very engaging. Start by creating a map of challenges that each player needs to complete. Invite people to compete by bringing a donation. The first person to complete all the challenges wins! You will also need to get prizes; try asking friends or a local business to see if they can donate one!
- Sports Tournament – Do you love playing sports? Organizing a game or tournament can be a fun way to get people active and supporting their neighbours. Ask players that want to join to bring a donation as the participation fee. You can also sell or distribute refreshments throughout the game. Invite members of the community to support and cheer the teams on!
