In addition to cooking classes and food sorting, you can also run your own fresh food drive.

Run a Fresh
Food Drive

GROUP SIZE : Your choice (minimum 10 people)
TIME : 4-8 hours
WHEN : You decide (in consultation with us)

HERE’S WHAT HAPPENS:

Select a few possible dates and contact food bank manager Deb at deb@edenffc.org to see if the dates are available for our truck. Then you will contact a local grocery store to see if they will allow you to stand at their entrances and ask people to donate fresh food. You will let them know that our refrigerated truck will be parked in front of the store to collect the fresh items.

Essentially, you will have people hand out flyers to customers requesting donations of fresh food: milk, meat, cheese, eggs, yogurt, milk alternatives, butter etc. Other members of your group will collect any donations that are given as customers exit the store and take them to the volunteer(s) that are with the truck who are sorting items into the proper bins.
