Food Drive Information

Food drives play a vital role in helping us to serve those in need in our community. You can make a major impact by organizing a food drive on our behalf.

About 1/3 of our yearly food collection comes from individual donations and community food drives. Last year, we collected over 300,000 pounds of food through local drives and in 2016 we hope to increase this figure.

The goal of food drives is to bring in as many non-perishable essential items as possible to help us fill our nutritionally sound “staple boxes” distributed to Food Bank participants. There are a number of resources we can offer to help organize your food drive and make it successful, such as:
  • customizable electronic flyers you can print out and hang to promote your drive
  • a “Most Needed” items list to share with your group so they can donate needed products
  • large collection boxes and brown grocery bags to collect donated items
  • we offer pick-up service for any collections too large to fit in a pick up truck
