Anyone can hold a Food Drive - individuals, businesses, schools, churches, and community groups are all welcome to participate.

Working through our Food Drive Coordinator, the Pantry is happy to provide ideas and tools to make your drive successful. This can include sample communications and our most needed items poster; as well as collection boxes and assisting with the delivery of the donations directly to the Pantry. We would also be glad to coordinate a tour of the Pantry and provide an overview of our operations.

Once your Food Drive is completed, the Pantry will celebrate your accomplishment with our community through our social media platforms.
