Food drive

  • Canned food

Purpose

Provide food for the hungry.

Description

Organize a food drive and collect nonperishable food to give to a food bank or other organization that assists the hungry. Consider contacting these organizations to find out what types of food are particularly needed. Before or after the activity, review and discuss the story from Matthew 25:31–45 with the youth. What does this teach us about why we serve? Invite the youth to share how they feel when they serve others and why they feel that way.
