Whether it’s your goal to collect food, raise funds or a combination of both, events of all sizes play an important part in raising awareness about hunger in Mississauga and providing the food and funds we need to feed our hungry neighbours.
Step 1 – you MUST register your event!
Food Drives and Fundraisers are limited only by your imagination – garage sales, scavenger hunts, charity dinners…almost anything! Feel free to use your own ideas, or take a look at some of our ideas.
4. Fundraise Online
Consider our **NEWEST** way to fundraise! Set up a My Own Fundraiser page that you manage and edit, and send emails and social media messages to your contacts asking them to donate! This is a great add-on to other food- and fundraising activities you have planned.
If you’re running a food drive, there are sections on the Registration Form where you can let us know your goals, whether you need food collection boxes or a food pick-up.
5. Set Goals. The ‘when’ and ‘where’ is the easy part of an event, following through is the fun part!
6. Decide how you’re going to collect, store and transport the food.
