Introduction
Thank you for volunteering to conduct a food drive on behalf of the Interfaith Food Pantry. As
you may know, more than 5,000 families in Morris County rely on us for supplemental groceries
year round. Last year we distributed nearly 800,000 pounds of food to low-income working
families, senior citizens living on fixed incomes and the unemployed. We delivered an
additional 65,000 pounds to housebound seniors and the disabled. We’re currently distributing
15,000 pounds of food per week. We would not be able to continue to meet this need without
the help of volunteers like you.

Overview
There are four phases to a food drive:
      Planning the Drive
      Promoting the Drive
      Collecting the Food
      Delivering the Food
This guide provides information on how to conduct each phase and includes tips and tools to
help you to be successful!

Planning the Drive
The planning phase will be slightly different depending on whether you’re conducting the drive
with an organization or company, with a small group, or independently. The following list
summarizes the basic steps needed for all cases.

   1. Decide on the type of drive (collect door-to-door or hold the drive at one or more
      collection sites), the location, and if you wish, a theme. Tool: Refer to Ideas and
      Themes for Food Drives for suggestions to get you started.

   2. Decide on the date and length of the drive.

   3. Decide how to accept monetary donations during the drive. You can collect the
      donations in a container or provide your donors with a coupon that they can mail directly
      to the Pantry. Tool: We’ve provided a coupon to use.
   4. Gain support from a leader in the organization, corporation, or community, or from
      friends, co-workers, or fellow associates. Tip: Consider asking your company to make
      a matching gift or challenge grant in conjunction with the drive. For example, they could
      donate a dollar for every pound of food collected. Tool: We’ve included sample letters
      to use as models.
   5. Develop a plan to promote the drive. Refer to the section Promoting the Drive for tips
      on how to do this effectively.

   6. Gather the necessary materials: boxes and/or bags for groceries, container and/or
      coupons for monetary donations, promotional materials, and the list of current Pantry
      food needs, which we’ve included in this package.
   7. Designate a specific contact who will work with the Pantry to arrange for the food
      delivery once the drive is complete.
   8. Kick off the drive with a meeting or special event. Tip: Consider inviting a
      representative from the Pantry to speak to your group prior to the drive.

Promoting the Drive
If you’re running a drive at your workplace or within an organization, encourage participation by
displaying posters and flyers, sending email, posting information on your website or in your
bulletins, and announcing the drive at meetings.
Publicize the drive within your community with posters and flyers. If you’d also like to announce
the drive using local TV, radio, and newspapers, please contact us for assistance in preparing a
press release. Tools: We’ve provided a copy of our flyer, and brochures, posters and
monetary donation canisters are available upon request. As an alternative, you could bring the
flyer to a local quick printing shop, enlarge it, and mount it on poster or foam board.

Collecting the Food
As you plan how you’ll collect the food, focus on making the donation process as easy as
possible. If you are collecting food door-to-door, consider dropping off bags at each house
ahead of time with a note attached. Tip: Be clear about the date when you will return to collect
the food and where you would like the donation to be left.
If you are holding a drive at a collection site, place sturdy, well-marked containers in a visible
location. Check the site frequently and remove some of the donations periodically. Tip: If you
are conducting the drive within your own organization or business, consider providing bags
ahead of time that people can take home.

Delivering the Food
Contact the Pantry to set up a specific day and time when you will drop off the food and any
monetary donations you received, and also provide a rough estimate of the amount of food that
will be delivered. Be sure you have provided directions to the Pantry to all volunteers who are
helping with the delivery.
When you come to the Pantry, we will ask you to fill out a Donation Information form and we’ll
weigh your donation. You will receive a follow-up thank you from us in acknowledgment of your
food drive. Tip: Consider combining the food delivery with a tour of the Pantry or a “work
project” for your volunteers.

After the Drive is Over
Thank your volunteers and celebrate your success. Consider having a party to show your
appreciation. Publicize the results of your drive within your company, organization, and/or
community.
                         Ideas and Themes for Food Drives
The following are some suggestions on how to set up your drive:
    Collect food outside of a grocery store.
    Establish a collection point in a central location at your workplace, business, or your
     organization’s headquarters, such as the reception area, cafeteria, break room, waiting
     room, or checkout counter.
    Hold a food drive at your swim club, local Y, summer camp, or as part of a sports event.
    Work with your community leaders to hold a food drive in conjunction with a town street
     festival or concert.
    Talk to your local library about doing a “Food for Fines” program, where they accept
     canned goods in lieu of overdue book fines. Or see if they can tie a “Read to Feed”
     program into their reading clubs, where they ask participants to bring food for each book
     they read.
    Throw a BBQ or block party and collect food.
    Ask for food as “admission” to a company or school event.
    Exchange a reward for a donation – allow employees/students to dress casual, etc.
    Ask for food donations in lieu of gifts at your next special event. Establish a theme that
     fits with the type of gathering.
The following are some ideas for designing a theme for your food drive:
    Designate theme days, such as Macaroni Monday (plain pasta and macaroni & cheese),
     Tuna or Tomato Tuesday (canned tuna or canned vegetables), Wheaties Wednesday
     (cereals), Thirsty Thursday (juice and Parmalat milk) and Fruity Friday (canned fruit).
    Tie your drive into a holiday.
    Run a Brown Bag Buddy drive during the summer to collect breakfast and lunch items
     for children who normally receive these meals through a school program.
    Create a slogan and/or theme that relates to your organization or business, such as
     “Make Every Bean Count” – a canned beans drive at an accounting firm.
The following are some ideas for how to create interest in your food drive:
    Be creative with collection containers – set up playpens for collecting baby items, fill a
     car for a Food DRIVE, etc.
    Set creative goals – collect food to reach a certain height or weight, or to fill a specific
     container or room.
    Create competitions – department against department, class against class, team against
     team.
    Set up a calendar where you suggest a specific item for people to set aside each day of
     the drive, and then bring to the collection point at the end.

                                          WHO WE ARE
The Interfaith Food Pantry was established in 1994 when a group from throughout the community, including
individuals from churches already operating food closets, met to discuss the issue of hunger in our area.
There already was a growing awareness that many families needed assistance in securing food. It was also
noted that a centralized location was necessary, since many of those in need did not have transportation. The
group decided to consolidate their programs working out of one central location in Morristown, and to seek the
community’s help in maintaining and staffing the project. We now distribute food Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday mornings and Thursday afternoon from the Pantry at 190 Speedwell Avenue, and on the first four
Wednesdays and Saturdays of the month from the warehouse at 540a West Hanover Avenue. We also deliver
groceries to housebound seniors and the physically disabled.

FOCUS
A few years ago, we met with other area agencies to determine what would be the best focus for the
Interfaith Food Pantry. Since there were already many excellent programs dealing with the needs of the
homeless, the decision was made to target those individuals and families that seemed to be falling through the
cracks. Our goal is to service Morris County residents who are housed in apartments, rooms, or, in some cases,
their own homes, who have some income but still are unable to meet their family’s basic needs. Our clients are
primarily senior citizens, low income working families, and the recently unemployed.

WHAT WE DO
In 2009, we served more than 13,000 people and distributed nearly 800,000 pounds of food. In addition to
dealing with daily requirements, the Pantry also tries to make the holidays a little brighter for those in need.
We provide December holiday baskets as well as Passover and Easter packages; at Thanksgiving last year, we
distributed more than 1,100 food baskets and turkeys.

Prospective clients are interviewed and complete an application. Need is determined by examining a family’s
disposable income. The Pantry gets referrals from many places including churches, hospitals, and schools as
well as local social service agencies and employers in the midst of layoffs. The biggest single expense most of
our clients have is housing, followed by health care.

Along with our feeding program, we feel it is important to provide information and education about the needs
in our community and volunteer opportunities where people can feel they have personally made a difference.
With this in mind, we offer tours and orientation programs to youth and adult groups, make presentations at
local churches and clubs, and provide volunteer opportunities to our community. Volunteers range from 5-year-
old Tiger Cubs to seniors in their mid-eighties. Groups come from civic organizations, temples, churches,
schools and local businesses. At present, we have more than 250 volunteers with regularly assigned tasks, and
hundreds more who come in on an as needed basis, who together keep the pantry and warehouse running.

Thanks to the outpouring of donations from throughout the community, we are also able to provide support to
other agencies this past year, including NJ Battered Women’s Services, Interfaith Council for Homeless
Families, Morris County Division of Aging and Disabilities, Morris County Office of Temporary Assistance,
NWNJ Maternal & Child Health Network, Hope House, the Community Soup Kitchen, Morris County Mental
Health Association, and others.
