The 11th annual Students Against Hunger Food and Fund Drive will take place September 28 through November 6, 2015. We need schools and students to all participate in order to meet our goal of raising enough food and funds to provide the equivalent of 450,000 meals for hungry Oklahomans in central and western Oklahoma.
For more information, please contact Meredith Diers at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 405-600-3174.
If your school is in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Yukon, or Moore sign up your school here. If your school is located in a different city, sign up here. This food drive is an opportunity for students to positively impact the lives of people in their own community. All of the donations collected by your school will benefit our partner agencies in your city/community.
Food Drive materials will be delivered to you the week of September 23 (before September 29). Access the 2014 Teacher Tool Kit, which is full of tips and tools to help you hold a successful food drive
Middle, elementary and high schools that collect the most pounds per student will receive awards and media recognition in honor of their accomplishment.
Last year, the Students Against Hunger Food and Fund Drive raised nearly 140,000 pounds of food and $75,000 -- enough to provide the equivalent of 490,000 meals.
