Host a Food & Fund Drive
Coordinating a traditional, fund or virtual food drive is an easy and great opportunity for your business, school, or program to help your local community. Below are two types of food and fund drives we offer for you to participate in.
Host a Food Drive
Food Drives allow members of a group to collect non-perishable food items to donate. It can be a one day event or take place for a predetermined amount of time, typically a week or month.
Holding a food drive in conjunction with an incentive is a great way to get others to participate. So get creative and have a contest or offer a discount at your store in exchange for food donations.
Fund or Online Food Drive
Fund Drives help raise money for Feeding the Gulf Coast to put towards one of our nutrition programs or general food distribution operations. They can be held alone or in conjunction with a traditional food drive.
Because the food bank has bulk purchasing power, with monetary donations we are able to process your donation into more meals. For every $10, Feeding the Gulf Coast can provide 50 meals to those in need.
