GENERAL PLANNING FOR FOOD DRIVE

 

-All donations to contribute to the Million Meals Campaign (which we contributed to last year with our 2 week campus wide food drive)

-Supports people in this part of NC (donations go to Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC)

 

-Carolina Cupboard Donation? (Percentage of donations at each event)

-Supports UNC students

-Total amount all counted for Million Meals (both to Cupboard & FBCENC)

-Last year 10% Carolina Cupboard, This year 25%

 

-Bins throughout campus:

-Dory: asked about boxes around campus; alas logistics was difficult so we won’t do the same scale as last year;

-Dory suggested competitive giving between buildings, like what Business School did

-Dory suggests year round bins, permanent, develop list of potential locations of particular significance from last year’s drive

-This can be done in small batches with area lead to contact food bank when bins are full

-Will discuss locations and bin liaisons for these campus bins at October meeting

 

-Volunteers for Project Leads- Jim Potts, Allison Rorie, Linda Glasco, Katie Musgrove

 

-Graphic Design Options for Football vs. Other Events –

-Katie will work with Banks Shepherd with Tar Heel Sports Properties to develop these

– New flyer with all of event drives, online donation info, and if we do campus locations

-Flyers: 1 for Food Drive in general and 1 specifically for Football events (that removes reference to Million Meals due to sponsorship conflicts)

 

-Website/Hashtag Creation –

-Website: unc.edu/food4alldrive

-Hashtag: #UNCFoodForAll

 

[Fliers/ website will be available prior to October meeting]

 

-Box Preparation, Pickup & Storage –

-Banks & Tar Heel Sports Properties will provide the bins prior to each event (except for Employee Appreciation, which we will need to bring)

-Storing donations after events for pickup on a weekday—

-Bonita Brown with Carolina Union will inquire about temporary storage of donations after each event until pickup by FBCENC on a weekday

-Arlene: With permanent installations, need to talk to facilities to discuss safety, etc.

-Banks says he might get his staff to move items via personal cars on Sunday if necessary

 

-Publicizing Methods:

-InTouch, Staff Listservs, OHR Employee Appreciation Day Communications, Twitter, Facebook, Carolina Athletics Communications & Social Media, etc.

-Need to be creative: Publix vs Harris Teeter sponsorship

-Will further discuss pub methods at October meeting

 

-Poster creation for donation booth

-Katie will liaise with Forum assistant to create this once graphic design is available

 

-Alternative donation methods:

-Banks: technology to ease logistics; donations via technology instead of physical goods

-Asked Shayna: it’s tricky, fundraising is not approved, but work with Fajack’s Campus Enterprises, competition to create an app to do something

-Banks: There is an app by Harris teeter to donate directly to NC Food Bank, we can publicize that

-Shayna: We can share that info, that’s not considered fundraising

-Dory: Can VIC cards be linked to Food Bank or Carolina cupboard, like elementary schools are?

-Banks will look into it.
