Host a food or fund drive 


Out of concern for the health and safety of our community, we are asking that people not convene or conduct food drives at this time nor are we accepting individual food donations. We’re grateful to our giving community, if you would like to make a difference, financial support is the best way to help. For every $1 given the food bank can purchase 5 meals. Please consider making a gift here

Our corporate friends and local schools have brought food drives to a new level with “Can-Struction,” friendly competitions, and Peanut Butter vs. Jelly Drives.
