Murray Area Chamber of Commerce, Women In Business  asks members to drop of donations at their meetings.  Stephanie Wright (far L)  is Chamber President.

When having your Christmas and holiday parties, ask each guest to bring a few items to fill a bin for donation to KidsEat! People love to donate during the giving season. Lynda Brown has done this for many years with her neighborhood ladies' group. Instead of exchanging a gift, each lady brings a sack full of food. If you are a business, make a Christmas Tree of the collected food and then donate it to KidsEat! Program.

HOLIDAY FOOD GIFTING PARTIES

       Families work together to gather food.  We had one generous family whose goal was to gather enough food for 100

       backpacks!  They delivered them directly to the Murray Club. They did a phenomenal job and earned the satisfaction of

       helping others at the same time.

FAMILY CHARITY PROJECT

       Neighbors join together to help fight hunger in their own back yard by having a food drive, topped off with a

        neighborhood Bar-B-Q or similar event.  

NEIGHBORHOOD  & LOCAL  SCHOOLS

Boy and Girl Scouts are always looking for charity and volunteer opportunities. 

KidsEat! is the perfect activity for fulfilling an Eagle Scout Project!

SCOUTING ORGANIZATIONS

​If you have a talent or gift of speaking you can sponsor an event featuring your skill or talent. If you have a band, are a dancing club or other performing group, have a performance and have the price of admission be food. Jeremy Holm is an example of making this work ! He presented a wonderful motivational seminar.

TALENT SHOWS & SEMINARS

Lion's, Kiwanis, Rotary, Exchange Club, Chambers of Commerce, Sororities, UWABO,   Bunko and Bingo Clubs and everyone else !  Have your members bring their donation to your meeting for donation. 

COMMUNITY & SOCIAL GROUPS

"Girls for Good" from Sandy, Utah  organizing donations.

Men's and Women's Church organizations are the perfect groups to sponsor a food drive such as  Sororities, Church Women's Organizations ie: Relief Society, Eastern Star, Mutual Girls,  Job's Daughters, Demolay, Priesthoods, etc.

TEAM WORK IN ACTION

​​
Departments within a company or business can have an inter-departmental challenge. The winning department
gets a reward.  The Utah Department of Corrections is a great example of a successful  “Challenge”.   The winning
Department got a pancake breakfast with the Chief and with Lynda Brown and Bob Dunn,  VP,  B&G Club of
Greater  Salt Lake.     Murray City Employees did a similar drive as well to help feed our kids !
