Teams earn points throughout this engaging CSR activity as they play challenges and earn snack items that will be donated to local children in need.
Do you remember coming home after school and heading into the kitchen to grab a snack? Well, imagine not only not getting a snack, but also not eating again until you got your school lunch the following day. For many kids who are homeless or living in poverty, school lunch is the only meal they eat Monday – Friday and they go hungry all weekend long. So, fight hunger not by grabbing a snack, but by packing one for a child in need!
By the end of the event, participants will have the items they need to fill drawstring backpacks with snack items that may include:
But first, teams must “earn” the snack package items. They do this by participating in a series of games that are sure to bring back many fun childhood memories. Games include:
When I Was Your Age - To break the ice, every player will start off standing & must recall memories from their childhood. The emcee will ask players to remain standing if they did the action as a child. For example, remain standing if you had milk for lunch in grade school. Remain standing if you rode the bus to school, etc.
Board No More – Teams open a bag containing a variety of printed pieces in different geometric shapes. On the emcee’s “go!” they race to be the first team to put the pieces together in a way that replicates an image of the board from a classic board game.
Sticky Fingers - Teams send forward players who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty in this musical money grab. Like in musical chairs, these players will have to be fast on their feet!
Animal Cracker Fact or Fiction – Everyone puts their knowledge to the test in this activity in which players must determine fact from fiction. For instance, “A total of 37 different animals have been featured in Barnum's Animals Crackers since 1903.” That IS a fact.
Breakfast of Champions - Take a minute to think back to your favorite cereal growing up. Was it something colorful like Fruity Pebbles or Trix? Were you cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs? Each player writes down their favorite cereal on the provided paper and hopes to stay in it to win it as the emcee names different cereals eliminating players until one Champion remains!
Alphabet Soup - Teams attempt to make more complete words out of the letters they are given than any other team in the time allowed.
Candy Craze - Teams must work together to organize giant bags of candy! How quickly can they separate the sweets by color?
The winning team for each challenge will head to the stage to choose a square with a point value hidden on the back of the square. Will their chosen square be worth 5 points? OR will their chosen square be worth 25 points? It’s anyone’s game from the beginning to the end... The winning team will not be revealed until the snack packs are completed!
Once the games portion of the event is over, teams begin to assemble their kids’ snack packs. While they do this, a representative from the local charity speaks to the group about the good work they are doing and thanks them for their generous donation.
This event is packed with fun and feel good moments your attendees won’t soon forget!
