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.

Individually or as a team, you can meander the virtual aisles, dropping food into your cart. With just a few clicks, you can make a huge impact without ever leaving your desk.

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.


If necessary, gain approval from your company or organization.


Form a committee and delegate responsibilities.

Determine Dates

Determine the dates of your drive, whether it will be a one-day event or if it will run for weeks or months.


Who would you like to invite to take part in your drive? (Examples: co-workers, family, friends, classmates, teammates, clients, etc.)
