Host a Food & Funds Drive

You can make a difference in the life of people who face food insecurity. Coordinate a food and funds drive with your family, business, school, church or community organization. The Foodbank encourages all organizations to collect funds as well as food. Every $1 donated can provide enough food for 4 meals!

Getting Started

  • Plan Ahead - put together a team to select dates, set a goal and handle details
  • Have fun - choose a theme that represents your business or organization, holidays or season of the year
  • Get the word out - create flyers or posters; promote in newsletters, e-blasts and on your website
  • Be creative - decorate collection boxes, offer incentives or prizes for the class or department that collects the most food. Check out this list of Creative Food Drive Ideas.
  • Start with a bang and end with a big finale - have kickoff and wrap up events
