How To Participate in The Good Garden Food Drive

1. Form a Team

A team can be a class, a grade, a school, an afterschool program, a club or even the kids in your neighborhood.

2. Register Your Team

Registration begins In September 2010 at www.thegoodgarden.org. Registering will allow you to share how much food your team has collected. You need a team leader who is an adult older than 18 years to register your team.

3. Read The Good Garden and Reflect on Its Key Lessons

After reading The Good Garden, ask your students for their ideas on why some people go hungry. Reasons might include: climate variations which affect local food production, living in a poor part of the world or a city where there is little money to buy food, living in an area destabilized by wars or droughts, or not owning land where food could be grown.

4. Explore the Issue

From September to December 2010 explore the issue of food security and the needs in your community and around the world with your team using activities from www.thegoodgarden.org.

5. Collect cans of food and donate to your local food pantry or bring vegetables to school to donate to a local soup kitchen.

Go to http://feedingamerica.org/foodbank-results.aspx to locate your local food pantry in the US.

Food security is one of the big issues of our time.

  • Only half the people in the world always have enough food.
  • And of that half, 17% face real food shortages that may result in malnutrition and even starvation.
  • Yet there is enough food on earth to feed all its inhabitants.

The Good Garden Food Drive is a program to get children across North America to understand the issues of food security in their community and around the world and help to make a difference by collecting and donating food to a local food bank. This is a year long drive so you can join in at any time!

Over 72,000 lbs donated so far.

Help your community and be part of the Good Garden national fight againt hunger!
