    • Capture the title with theme days: Macaroni Monday, Tuna Tuesday, White Rice Wednesday, Thirsty Thursday, Fruity Friday
    • Show your team work by filling the principal's off with The Food Bank's most needed items
    • Demonstrate your team's depth with a structure built from the food collected
    1. Inspire your school's community with our various tools to raise vital food to help struggling families in Waterloo Region. Don't forget to let us know what you are doing by emailing us (beckyr@thefoodbank.ca) and through social media.
    2. Drop your food donations off at The Food Bank by November 3rd, 2017
      We'll weigh them & enter your school into the contest. Need your donations picked up? Be sure to indicate that on your Food & Fund Drive registration form.
    3. Keep track of your school's most deserving (25 students maximum)
      Who raised the most food? Who was most creative? Who were the leaders of the Food & Fund Drive?

        What will your school win?

        Each school who participates in the Fall Food Drive will be eligible to be chosen to visit The Food Bank of Waterloo Region.
