Host a Food & Fund Drive

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! 

You can make a difference in your community by hosting a Virtual Food Drive for your friends, family members, or coworkers. 

Starting a Virtual Food Drive is easy! 

  1. Register to create a Virtual Food Drive page.
  2. Personalize your page. 
  3. Invite friends, family or coworkers to join! 

If you have any questions, email us at fooddrive@foodbankcenc.org

Planning Your Drive

Let us know you’re coming! If you have a planned date and time to drop off your food drive, please email us ahead of time so we can make sure to have staff and volunteers on hand to unload and weigh your donations. 

We are able to pick up donations of 500 pounds or more. For reference, that’s about 500 cans! Pickup requests must be made at least one week prior to the desired pickup date by contacting fooddrive@foodbankcenc.org
