Host A Food Drive

We Need Your Help Stocking Our Shelves!

Help Make a Difference in the Community by Hosting a Food Drive

Thousands of residents, schools, churches, and businesses generously donate food to the Harvest Hope Food Bank each year through a variety of corporate, civic, and holiday food drives.

What is a Food Drive?
A food drive is a concentrated effort to collect non-perishable food in a certain time period. You and/or your organization will work with Harvest Hope Food Bank in coordinating your organization’s food drive. If you would like to learn about our virtual food drives click here.

Food Drive Kit
We have created a Food Drive Kit, which will help you along the way with running and coordinating a food drive. The kit includes fun ideas, a checklist, our most need items, our official food drive poster, and more information about us. If you would like to download this full kit please click here. 

Harvest Hope Food Bank has Food Drive Boxes, which can be borrowed for your food drive. Each box will hold between 100 and 150 cans of food. If you will need boxes, please notify Harvest Hope at the beginning of your food drive. You are free to decorate these boxes, as needed. You are also free to use your own boxes if you have any.

Transportation of Food
Groups are encouraged to deliver boxes to Harvest Hope Food Bank. You are free to deliver donations anytime Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. However, if the amount of food is too great to be transported by car, please contact us for a pick-up (please allow a minimum 48-hour notice). 

**During our peak seasons (Thanksgiving / Christmas) we encourage a 1-week notice, to ensure a pickup slot is reserved**
