Food Drives

Hold A Food Drive

Food and fund drives are a great way for a community or civic organization to get involved in hunger relief. We gratefully accept the proceeds of food drives at schools, churches, and other organizations. 

The busiest months for food donations are November and December; however, we struggle to meet the needs of our five-county service area the rest of the year. One way to keep food donations coming in all year-long is to plan a food drive for one of the many holidays that occur between January and October. Organizing a successful food drive during the “off-season” can be easy if you plan ahead. Popular events such as St. Patrick’s Day give you a convenient theme for your food drive.

If you are planning a food or fund drive, please submit your event to our calendar by contacting:
