We’re seeing more and more groups interested in organizing a #GiveHealthy Food Drive and this one caught our attention. The Curbing Hunger Youth Council is a group of teens supporting the mission of Curbing Hunger. Curbing Hunger has been raising food for hunger organizations for over 20 years to help them during the summer, a time when donations drop at the very time the number of people in need grow (from school aged children supporting by school feeding programs during the school year). Kudos to these young people making a difference! We think they ROCK! Feel like supporting their drive? You can donate here.
We’ve been working closely with a terrific food pantry that serves people in and around Greenwich, Connecticut on a CASE STUDY to see what happens when groups begin to organize #GiveHealthy food drives. The short answer: WOW!
WOW! means they raise more food, they raise healthy food and have alot of fun doing it. For Neighbor to Neighbor, besides getting lots of fresh produce and other healthy food, they get to know the people making those donations! 85% of the people making a #GiveHealthy donation were new donors! (or, if they had donated canned goods before, Neighbor to Neighbor had no way to know that).
At Amp – we’re constantly looking for ways to help in more ways than one – its what we talk about and what we know we are designed to do. It’s great to have strong data that backs up what we tell people!
