Trick or Treat So Kids Can Eat — “Because hunger is a very scary thing.”
Trick or Treat so Kids Can Eat (TOTS-EAT)is the International Thespian Society’s annual nationwide community service initiative to collect food for the hungry. This is the perfect project for students who want to help the less fortunate in your community. With the help of over 291 Thespian troupes, more than 354,000 pounds of food were collected during the 2012 TOTS-EAT food drive. Imagine feeding every one of last year’s 2,500 International Thespian Festival participants breakfast, lunch, and dinner for nearly a month!Last year’s generous donations were delivered to local organizations, which distributed them where they were needed the most. Thanks to the International Thespian Society, it truly is easy to have a big impact on hunger in your community with a little work. As a bonus, your Thespian troupe may earn some terrific publicity.
Everything you need to conduct a successful food drive can be found right here.

We challenge all Thespian troupes to help us reach the 2013 goal of 365,000 pounds. Will your troupe help? Please join us in giving back to the community, “because hunger is a very scary thing.” Pre-registration and award eligibility ends October 15.
