Food Drives Fight Hunger

It takes a community to fight hunger – that’s why we have opportunities for individuals, families, small groups, and large donors to get involved! Look below to see how you can host a food drive, start a virtual food drive, or remotely send food to the food bank!

Donate Food. Help End Hunger

If you’d like to give non-perishable food items, host a food drive and donate essential items directly to partner food pantries across our 10-county reach. By boosting our efforts with food drives, you create more opportunities to put meals on people’s tables.

Maximize Your Impact

Hosting a virtual food drive for your team is ideal for those who lack the storage, equipment or staff to host a traditional drive at their organization or business. Due to our incredible partnerships with retailers and grocers, we are able to provide an exponential amount of meals for every $1 that is donated and multiply your gifts many times over. This expedites food distribution directly into homes that need our help.
