Food & Fund Drives

Community sponsored fund and food drives are vital to Food Bank operations. Contributions from businesses, schools, churches, community organizations and individuals generate thousands of meals for families, children and seniors each year.

Start a Fund Drive

Did you know?

Because of our buying power and ability to source food, the Food Bank can make a dollar go a long way. In fact, every dollar donated allows us to provide two meals’ worth of food to those in need. That’s one reason why we encourage supporters to consider hosting a fund drive to benefit the Food Bank.

Fund drives can be a ton of fun for everyone involved! Host a bike race and ask friends to donate for every mile you ride, team build at work and challenge co-workers to raise money for the Food Bank or maybe celebrate your birthday and ask friends to donate in your honor. The sky’s the limit. All you need to do is register to get started.

Thanks to our grocery rescue program and our membership in the Feeding America network, financial donations can help us acquire large amounts of food to distribute to our clients.

Host a Food & Essentials Drive


*Please contact Nancy to start your food or essentials drive:

Community-sponsored food and essentials drives are important sources of nutritious food and necessities for those we serve. If you are interested in helping move our clients from hunger to health, a great place to start is by hosting a food and essentials drive.

Healthy food and essentials drives are easy to host. Get started by contacting our team to find out more. Then, print a Healthy Food Drive Poster or Holiday Food Drive Poster to promote your event. If you are hosting a diaper drive for The Nappie Project, be sure to review this check list to make your drive a success!
