Our school, along with the 3 other elementary schools in our county, is conducting a food drive from Nov. 1 thru mid December. As coordinator for all schools, I'm trying to think of weekly themes to encourage students to bring specified items. I have some basic ideas, but I've hit a road block. Any suggestions would be MUCH, MUCH appreciated.
1 year we competed against another school in the district. The school that lost the competition had the principal dress in the other schools school spirit clothes.
We have also had the student to bring in the most cans gets to cream a pie in the principals face at an assembly. We also have classrooms compete for something special (extra recess, party)
Hope you'll all connect with
. It's a brand new non-profit dedicated to all things regarding school food drives. The kit has tons of great ideas and planning tools and posters and the like. And the Facebook page for Schools Serve is also a great place for connecting with others.
Finally, Schools Serve is also tallying the results of all school food drives this school year. Hope you'll add your results to the count.
