Holding a food drive for your local food bank is a simple and rewarding process.  With the need as great as ever      before, now is the perfect time to hold a food drive. 

  1. Identify and contact your regional or local food bank.  They will be happy to hear you are considering holding a food drive!
  2. Find out if they have any specific needs in the way of non-perishable food.
  3. Identify, contact and get agreement from "your community" (this may be your faith congregation, service club, fellow employees, neighborhood, school, etc.) to collect food for a pre-determined amount of time.
  4. If you are in a community with several organizations similar to yours, we encourage you to work together and schedule non-competing drives so that your regional or local food bank has an on-going flow of food to help them meet the needs.
  5. Deliver the food to the food bank.
  6. Start over next month!
