Our community is blessed with the generosity of our residents. We are grateful for those who participate in our three biggest annual food drives, but we are always happy to help people host their own food drives!
Food drives can be stand-alone events, or associated with another activity. They can be hosted by companies, or one or more private individuals. Here are just a few ideas:
- Birthday parties
- Special movie showings
- Sports events (in-person or on TV)
- Community dances
- Halloween parties, haunted houses, and trick-or-treating
- Christmas or other holiday parties
Healthy Food Donation Policy
Sheboygan County Food Bank champions healthy choices in employees, volunteers and clients. We believe that every person has the right to access healthy food. A healthy, sustainable food supply decreases chronic diseases, increases productivity in the classroom and workplace, and increases health equity in our communities. See our Healthy Food Donation Policy.
Healthy Food Drive Tool Kit
Employees of Sheboygan County Food Bank and members of the Sheboygan Activity and Nutrition Committee (SCAN) came together to create the Sheboygan County Food Drive 5 Toolkit. With permission, the Toolkit was adapted from Brown County as a resource to assist individuals, businesses, agencies, churches, schools and other organizations in promoting their food drives and healthy food donations. It provides informational posters, ideas for promoting on social media, and community-based statistics.
