No matter what time of year it is, our Food Pantry is always looking for schools who are willing to host a Food Drive. We are grateful for schools that step up every year to provide food for the families we serve in Onondaga County. Thanks to the generosity of students and families, more than 3,500 families received food baskets last December as part of Christmas Bureau Distribution. Additionally, our Food Pantry provides meals to hungry families every week of the year. Since 1883, we have focused on the same goal: serving the most people, meeting the most needs and doing the most good. Help us ‘Make Change Happen’ by hosting a School Food Drive.
Thank you for helping us Make Change Happen!
Together, we can make change happen and have a big impact in our community. School Food Drives provide an educational opportunity about the need in our communities while enriching the lives of those who participate. Many schools turn the School Food Drive into grade level competitions, which is a fun way of increasing involvement.
It is very easy for YOUR SCHOOL to get involved. Here’s how it works:

If you have any questions about the School Food Drive, please call 315.479.1162 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be happy to visit your school to speak with your students about how The Salvation Army is making a difference in the lives of those we serve.
