Virtual Food Drive

Virtual food drives are online fund-raising campaigns that still have the exciting hands-on feel of a canned food drive, and provide an effective and efficient way for you and your organization to help end hunger. The virtual format makes it easy to use and manage, while allowing people to make a contribution from their desk. With the point and click of a mouse, you can choose the type and quantity of food products you wish to donate.

Benefits of a Virtual Food Drive:

  • Eliminates the time and cost of Food Bank staff to sort and redistribute collected food.
  • No heavy boxes of food to carry and deliver to The Food Bank.
  • Your donation goes further. For every $1 you donate through the virtual food drive towards food purchases and distribution, we are able to provide 3 meals.
  • Our virtual food drive tool is fully customizable for your company, group, or school, so you can have the same feeling of team effort as you would with a canned food drive.

Canned Food Drive

A canned food drive is a great way for individuals, groups and organizations of all sizes to take action and help fight hunger in our community. They can also provide nutritious food and vital operating funds while raising awareness of hunger issues in our communities.

Our Food Drive Tool Kit will provide you with all the information you need to get started. To help ensure the success of your food drive, we can support you with publicity, materials & flyers about The Food Bank, and fact sheets to generate participation in your event.
