Host a Food Drive
Hosting a food drive is a meaningful and fun way for schools, civic groups, offices, places of worship and neighborhoods to support our mission. Food drives raise awareness of hunger in our communities, help our neighbors in need, and play an essential role in the fight against hunger. Free boxes for collection are available from the Food Bank.
Groups, organizations and businesses also have the option of hosting a food-specific drive, asking peers to collect one specific food item, like pasta or jars of peanut butter. This type of food drive is easy to implement, fun to promote, and helps us address a specific food need.
Our drivers are certified food handlers trained to the standards required by the Department of Environmental Health and the Department of Agriculture. To schedule a pick-up of a large-scale food donation of 1,000 pounds or more, please contact Danielle Helm, Food Sourcing Coordinator.
