2 Ways to Host a Food & Fund Drive

1. Virtual Food Drive

Forget the hassle of a trip to the grocery store for your next food drive… create a food drive without the heavy lifting using our Virtual Food Drive, and maximize your donation times five! For every $1 donated, the Food Bank can provide FIVE meals!

Starting a Virtual Food Drive is easy!

  2. Personalize your page.
