Maria "Rose" Belding and Tariro Makoni are what we would call some "souper" high school students! Working together as hunger advocates from Iowa and North Dakota, they have created Fighting for Food: A Guide to Running Successful Food Drives in High Schools. After noticing that food drives are conducted in schools across the country different times each year, Belding and Makoni created this guide as a tool to help schools make a larger impact. After many trials, the two found many models that encourage student donations. In the guide, they explain incentives, generating publicity and managing donations.
We encourage you to read through their Food Drive Guide, so you can better understand the importance of food drives and how easy it can be to host a successful one! As Belding said in her blog, "It can serve as a one-stop, 19-pages-fit-all manual if you need it, or can be a resource simply to skim for new ideas on how to engage your peers. No matter where you're at or who you are, this is something you can do. We promise." To learn more, you can read Belding and Makoni's story here.
