Host a Food and Fund Drive
Virtual Food Drive
Forget the hassle of a trip to the food bank for your next food drive… create a food drive without the heavy lifting and delivery to the Foodbank using our Virtual Food Drive, and maximize your donation time.

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

Traditional Food & Fund Drive
Individual donors could go the extra mile to create fundraising events around special occasions such as birthdays, weddings and anniversaries. This could mobilize friends, families and co-workers to donate food items, non-food items and clothing materials to a drop off point which would ease conveying of items to the foodbank.
Food drives could also be set up in work places – a box could be stationed at a particular location for a period of time where coworkers can drop off items and then the items could be conveyed to the foodbank afterwards.
All you have to do is let us know your preferred food drive dates, a fundraising goal, and if you would like to include our logo and/or image for a flyer.
