If you’d like to have a food drive, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org describing your idea for a food drive. You can encourage a group of friends who have gathered at a potluck, cocktail party or birthday celebration to bring food to donate to Catonsville Emergency Assistance. Or hold a food drive for us where you work.
Student groups, from day care programs and elementary schools to colleges and universities, have used a variety of approaches to collecting food. For example, the Student Sharing Club at Catonsville High School has a food drive each Halloween. The week before they go door-to-door in the nearby community leaving a flyer at each residence informing them of the food drive and asking them to set a plastic bag with non-perishables out on Halloween.
