Tap into your local community and ask for their assistance where you can organize a food drive for areas that need help. Public schools are a great connection point as well. You can ask for volunteers to help you cook and package food items in addition to distributing meals. Put up a special program where kids can have fun by playing games and giving out simple prizes.
