Food Drive Ideas

- Year round drives at your church/business/school/organization featuring our

Item of the Month each month. A printable copy of the list is available here.

Pack a Box food drives where you collect the items in our food boxes and aim

for a certain number of completed boxes.

- Competition Drives - Schools can compete against other schools, classes can

compete against one another, grade levels, businesses, departments, Sunday School

classses, etc. Everyone loves a good, friendly competition for a good cause.

- Souper Bowl of Caring - This is a national food drive occurring on Super Bowl Sunday. Bring your donations to KARE's Food Pantry (208 E. Marion Street) on Super Bowl Sunday (or make arrangements the week after) and be counted in the organization's total.

 

- Stamp Out Hunger - KARE is proud to partner with our local mail carriers on this nationally recognized annual food drive. Residents simply leave donations in their mailbox and the letter carrier picks them up and donates them to our Food Pantry.
