Host a Food Drive

Food drives are one of the best ways to help make a difference for local families in need. We’re happy to provide a food collection box and help you organize all the details.

Current Most Needed Items: cereal/oatmeal, peanut butter, canned soup, canned tuna/chicken, canned fruit, and personal care items

**Non-expired, low-sodium, low-sugar, and light-syrup food items preferred.

Food Drive Checklist

Decide when you want to host a food drive and when the food collection boxes will be available for food contributions. Food drives can be stand-alone events, or associated with another activity.
Set a goal for the number of pounds of food you want to collect and promote your food drive on social media by tagging us at @shebctyfoodbank so that we can help you spread the word!
Review our Healthy Food Policy as a guideline for the best types of food to collect. Monitor your collection and let us know if you need more boxes.
We are happy to help you by providing, delivering, and picking up collection boxes for your food drive.

Thank you for helping make a difference for families in need!
