Working with our community
Some ideas for how to get involved!
Have a collection box in your office so that staff can easily bring in donations for the food bank. It is really helpful for us to know we have a steady supply of donations throughout the year!
Include news about the food bank in your internal newsletters and bulletins
Partner with the food bank as a tangible expression of your organisation's corporate social responsibility aims
Work with us as your designated Charity of the Year. Encourage your staff to fundraise via a range of activities and come on down to one of our bag-stuffing sessions!
Run a 'Grab a tin, bring it in!' collection in your school and invite pupils to regularly bring in one tin of beans, tomatoes or soup if they can. Ask a volunteer or team of volunteers to drive the donations to the food bank, or get in touch if you need to organise a collection.
If your school has a charity committee, get them involved in planning all sorts of different fundraising events for the food bank. We can help with posters, flyers and collection boxes!
