Youth Involvement

Kids are generous by nature, and they care about animals. Teaching children about altruism and giving back is fun with DF2FM!

Pet food drives are a great way to get kids engaged in the community, and they can be run at any time of the year. Even small children understand loving a pet as a family member and sharing food with others, so kids of any age can run a pet food drive.

Food drives can be hosted for a birthday, with a religious group, with a scout troop, at school, or just in the neighborhood!

We can provide donation boxes, flyers, and materials for your food drive. For more info and ideas, visit our page about hosting a pet food drive. For big groups or special events, you can also request a speaker for your school or other group. 

Bagging pet food is a great way for kids to get hands-on experience working in our warehouse.

Volunteers between the ages of 8 and 17 may work in the DF2FM warehouse only when one of the following is present: parent, legal guardian, and/or adult responsible for the supervision and care of the child. Volunteers under age 18 must have a waiver of liability form signed by a parent or legal guardian before they can volunteer. For safety reasons, children 7 and under are NOT allowed in the warehouse.

Don’t Forget to Feed Me welcomes students, community groups, and other organizations who encourage community service. We will work with you to schedule time in our warehouse for your group or, for larger groups or younger kids, we can help schedule off-site bagging.

We’re here to support your child’s efforts. Email us at to find out how your kids can get involved!
