Donate Food

The food industry makes generous donations to us, but certain important foods are often in short supply. You can help fill that gap and make a difference in the lives of hungry people. Your efforts to organize and conduct a food drive will provide nutritious, high-quality food for your neighbors in need.

HOST YOUR OWN FOOD DRIVE:

If you are representing yourself and your goal is to raise food or funds by encouraging your friends, family, and followers, the individual option is right for you!

If you are representing a group, club, community organization, or corporation to raise food or funds, the team option is just right!
