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.


UPCOMING FOOD DRIVE EVENTS:

Hosted by the Food Bank of South Jersey’s Board of Trustees. Meet the Board and help feed South Jersey by dropping off FROZEN TURKEYS, HOLIDAY HAMS, and all the holiday fixings!


HOST YOUR OWN FOOD DRIVE:

INDIVIDUAL 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!

TEAM FOOD DRIVE

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