Host a Food Drive
Help Feed Your Neighbors in Need
by Hosting a Food Drive
Food drives are a great, fun way to raise awareness about hunger and mobilize the community to provide food for our neighbors in need.
Boost your impact! Add an online Virtual Food Drive to your physical food drive. Supporters can select and pay for food items securely online via the Food Bank’s website. For every $1 donated, we can distribute 5 meals to those in need.

Follow These Easy Steps
to Host a Food Drive:
Register Your Food Drive
It takes just a few minutes to register your food drive. By registering, we can provide resources to make your drive a success!
Get Your Barrel
If you plan to collect food, you can request a collection barrel while you register. Learn about barrel drop off, pick up, and most needed foods in our F.A.Q.
Promote Your Food Drive
Our Food Drive Toolkit contains everything you need to be successful. We include a “how to” guide, printable posters and flyers, and answers to frequently asked questions.
The 200 Pound Pledge
Food drives are a great way to help the Food Bank. With the Food Bank’s limited time and funds, we need to maximize our resources. It would really help the Food Bank if you can commit to collecting at least 200 pounds of food through your food drive. That’s about 1 food drive barrel.
If your office/group is small, you can still help by:
Collecting food in your own containers and delivering it to the Food Bank.
Donating food at one of our food drive drop-off locations.
Your Donation Goes Further
with a Virtual Food Drive
We encourage you to add a Virtual Food Drive component to your food drive. By holding your food drive online, you will be saving the Food Bank time and resources that are incurred through physical food drives. Plus, your donations will help us purchase our most needed food items including canned meats, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, and cereal.
We’re here to help! Please contact the Food Bank’s Food Procurement Coordinator, Kimberly Castillo.
