Organizing a food, fund, or essentials drive is a great way to rally your school, community organization, or business around the common goal of alleviating hunger.

Decide how you would like to get involved! You can organize a drive of your own, or choose to participate in any of annual campaigns!




General Food/Funds and Essentials Drive
Looking to organize a general drive for the Food Bank? Check out our Food/Funds and Essentials Drive Handbook for ideas and tips to make your drive a success!


The Care Necessities
Personal care items such as soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorants, and toothpaste are in high demand and just as necessary as food for those in need. Consider hosting a drive to collect these donations any time of the year.


Hunger Action Challenge
In honor of Hunger Action Month in September, round up your colleagues and compete against other businesses and community organizations to see who can collect the most donations throughout the month!



The Annual Neighborhood Food and Fund Drive
Get involved in the Food Bank’s largest drive campaign! Become a Neighborhood Captain and help collect donations in your neighborhood each March.
