Juicebox/Wishlist Items Drive

It takes many hands and a lot of food to prepare nearly 7,000  Sack Suppers each school day and throughout the summer. In one month alone, Kids’ Food Basket uses over 100,000 juice boxes! That’s why we need your help to collect donations of the following:

Individual fruit cups or pudding cups
Cracker packs
Granola bars
100% fruit juice boxes
Peanut butter (any size jars)
Brown/white paper lunch sacks: 8lb. or extra large
Snack size zipper bags
Bulk pretzels
Cheerios (plain)
Bulk cheez-its or goldfish crackers

There are many creative ways for you, your family, your school, or other groups to lead food or juice box drives. Some great ideas that have been done before include:

  • Requiring juice boxes as admission to  party, game, dance, or community event.
  • Hosting a competition between classrooms (or grades) or departments to see who can collect the most food.
  • Requesting juice box or food donations instead of birthday gifts.
  • Hosting a Stuff the Bus event at your local grocery store.
