Host A Virtual Food Drive

Encourage your friends, co-workers or community members to click their way through a virtual grocery store to donate items that hungry families need most.

How A Virtual Food Drive Maximizes Donations

Thanks to our relationships with the food industry, we are able to acquire more food per dollar than the average person could get at the supermarket. With every $1 donation, you help us provide four meals to families in need.

That’s why virtual food drives help your donation go farther and feed more people.

Note: The prices in the virtual store may not reflect the actual prices we pay for food. Rest assured, we will acquire the best and most food available with your virtual food drive donation.
