Drive to Hunger AwarenessTwo of our partners, the Campus Kitchens Project and Generation No Kid Hungry, have teamed up to create an event called the Drive to Hunger Awareness. This event can be a great addition to Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Weeks held on high school and college campuses.

The Drive to Hunger Awareness consists of a food drive, hunger awareness forum, and advocacy opportunities. It combines the tangible action of a food drive with additional activities that encourage and promote future engagement around food insecurity.

Attendees are asked to bring canned foods for donation to a local campus or community organization (e.g, a food pantry, backpack program, etc.). The event can run anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours, with time allocated for the forum (guest speakers and Q&A) in the beginning, followed by activities and door prize distribution. Each speaker should be allotted a maximum of 15 minutes, so the forum can run more like a discussion rather than a lecture.
