Help Your Local Food Bank: Support Twitter For Food This Halloween!

Fill Bags of Candy, Collect Bags of Food! Our good friend and inspiring hunger fighter Tim Blair of Twitter For Food is promoting a great idea to fight hunger this Halloween  – He’s asking local hunger advocates around the country to leave a paper grocery bag with people in their neighborhoods, with instructions to fill the bag with canned food for the local food bank. The volunteer then comes by on Halloween to pick the bag up and makes the delivery to the food bank!

It’s too simple, really. You can make your own sheet to put on the bag like the sample he created, below,

or use this link to download a PDF version from

We agree with Tim – If just one person per neighborhood did this, think of all the food we could collect for local food banks!

You can also help to promote the idea on Twitter by using  the #twickortweet hashtag. Or you can just go out and do it!

If you’re going to join in on the action, please let him know and he’ll add you to the #twickortweeters list on

You can reach Tim on Twitter @hungernomore or send an email to
