Are there specific items that FastPacs is collecting?
Yes, please click on the “How to Help” at the tap for our a list of food items we are collecting.
Do we need to supply the food collection bins?
No, we will supply the collection bins.
How long does the food drive last?
One to two weeks is ample time to run a food drive.
Where should we place the collection bins?
Most schools place them in the hallways outside the cafeteria and near the front entrance for easy drop off.
Can each grade/classroom have its own collection?
Sure! It might be fun to have a “challenge” to see which classroom or grade level can collect the most.
What do we do if the bin gets full and the food drive isn’t over yet?
Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if your bins get full before your food drive is complete. We will be happy to send a volunteer to pick up and replace the bins.
If we want to pack our own bags, is that okay?
Yes, this activity is wonderful for teambuilding within your group, whether corporate, school or service club. Check out our How to Help page or email us at Volunteer@FriscoFastpacs.org to get a list AND quantitiy of what goes in each weekend meal bag.
