Collecting Food Donations

Your team may collect donations of nonperishable food items from anyone in the community. Your Team Coordinator should be in charge of selecting a location where food may be dropped off at your firm. Bar association teams may wish to designate a particular firm or location as their collection site. The Team Coordinator should also be in charge of coordinating the drop off of donations or a scheduled pickup of food by a food bank.

  • Refer to the list of most-needed items for guidance on what to collect and for information on restrictions.
  • Keep all food in one secure location until the end of the campaign.
  • Only donations collected between Feb 18 and March 1, 2013, will count in your score.
  • Arrange to drop off your food at a designated drop-off location or to have it picked up from your collection site. Your Team Coordinator will receive information about your designated drop-off location after your team registers.
  • Be sure to get the weight or item count of your food verified by an authorized representative of your food bank or designated drop-off location.
  • Report your totals at the end of the campaign. You must turn in all your food and mail your totals to LFI by March 8.

There are a number of required forms for you to complete in order to accurately report your results.
