Try This: Collect Food for Your Local Food Pantry at Grocery Stores

Offer a free reusable shopping bag in exchange for a donation

Station volunteers outside of grocery stores, and have them offer shoppers a free reusable shopping bag with your church’s name a logo on it, if they’ll purchase food and drop it off with you. Then take the food to your local food bank.
