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. To find out how to get your Thespian troupe registered and

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.”
