HOST YOUR OWN FOOD DRIVE.

 
 
 
 

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN KNOWING MORE ABOUT HOW TO HOST A FOOD DRIVE OR FUNDRAISER EVENT FOR THE FOOD BANK?

Read through our Food and Fund Drive Kit and fill out the last page. Please submit (page 6 only) to Valerie at the Food Bank. She’ll follow up with you and see how we can make your food drive a success!

HOW IT HELPS…

Fundraisers make an especially significant impact because every $1 donated to the Food Bank provides 5 meals to families.  

A food drive could consist of a variety of non-perishable items, or you could focus on one particular item such as cereal, peanut butter, canned tuna, or macaroni and cheese. You can also collect personal care items, which are always welcome donations.

Donations of either food or money are always appreciated. If you prefer to donate money, you may send the check directly to the Food Bank, or view the information above to pay via secure online processor Network for Good.

Any contribution, no matter how big or how small, is greatly appreciated because it all helps us help those in need.

Please contact us before you begin!
