The Blue Table Community Toolkit includes tools and tips to help guide and support community food drives.
Blue Table exists through the generous support of the UB and Buffalo community. Donated food and funds sustain Blue Table and help keep students healthy and safe.
A food drive has one focus: collecting non-perishable food for Blue Table. Blue Table has a specific inventory of healthy food options and food drives should support that inventory.
Whether you are working with a specific population of students, faculty or staff, within an office or department, or within the Buffalo community, food drives can bring a group or team together to support students.
Donations are incredibly important - whether they are donated food items or funds. Hosting a food drive is a fun and easy way to engage members of your UB community.
