Host an Individual Food Drive

There is power in a community united – a sense of “oneness” that joins people together. More than 18.5 million pounds of food – the equivalent of more than 15 million meals — was distributed throughout our South Jersey region in 2022.

None of this would have been possible without the power of the individual donor – supporting FBSJ’s mission to feed South Jersey.

The impact of a food drive can go even further virtually. Hosting a virtual food drive reaches more people to help more people right from a phone, tablet, or computer.

Virtual Food Drive

Virtual Food Drive:
The easiest way to reach the most people and have the most impact. Especially when every $1 donated provides 3 meals to South Jersey residents in need.

  • Easy Set-Up
  • Customizable Fundraising Page
  • Easy and Sharable Link Options

Traditional Food Drive

Individual Traditional Food Drive:
Host a traditional food drive by collecting non-perishable food items and then dropping off at a designated DROP-OFF LOCATION near you.

To sign up for a traditional food drive, please email with the name of your food drive, dates your food drive will be hosted, and any questions or concerns about hosting a food drive that will benefit the Food Bank of South Jersey.
