ORGANIZING A trick or eat CAMPAIGN

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Spread the Word

Trick or Eat raises awareness through materials, events and educational tools provided by Meal Exchange Trick or Eat Coordinators. As an event organization, you can adjust these tools to best meet the needs of your community.

Raise funds

Participant fundraising allows Trick or Eat to remain independent and effective. Funds raised through Trick or Eat also allow Meal Exchange to empower students with the resources and tools they need to address the systemic problems of hunger in the long term.

Take action

On the night of Halloween, Trick or Eaters go door to door in 100 communities across Canada to raise food for local food agencies, to address immediate hunger relief in the community.

 

what is the role of an organizer

Local Trick or Eat Organizers are the go-to people for coordinating their local events. Everything that this entails is covered in the Organizer Guide Below. This can be a big job, so we suggest taking this on as a team of at least two people - a Logistics Organizers and a Volunteer Organizer. Using our resources and support, organizers are responsible for: 

Logistics Organizer

  • Connecting with a local food agency
  • Registering their local event online online
  • Promoting the campaign to let your community know that Trick or Eat is taking place, by sharing posters, door hangers, and information provided by Trick or Eat (Meal Exchange National Office).
  • Ensuring that the event goes smoothly. Follow our Organizer Guide to plan a great Trick or Eat

Volunteer Organizer

  • Recruiting participants and volunteers to register online
  • Organizing routes for volunteers to collect food around the community
  • Encouraging team members to reach fundraising goals
  • Ensuring that the event goes smoothly. Follow our Organizer Guide to plan a great Trick or Eat
