Adopt-A-Month Program

school_food_driveHelp Us Keep the Shelves Full!

Orangevale Food Bank’s Adopt-A-Month program provides every member of the community an opportunity to contribute to helping our neighbors in need. We rely on donations from schools, churches and clubs to do what we do. This is an organized method of having each group “adopt” one month of the year to hold a food drive to help fill the shelves for that month.

Here’s how it works:

  • Choose one month each year to do a foodraiser using our food drive kit
  • Great for schools, church groups, community clubs
  • Make it a contest for Most Pounds Collected, Most Bag, Most of a certain item (current top needs are available from OVFB staff)
  • Can be held for a week of the month, or the entire month
  • What is Provided:
    • Paper or burlap bags for each person
    • Flyers to attach to bag
    • “What to Buy” Guide
