Host A Virtual Food Drive

Encourage your friends, co-workers, or community members to come together to fight hunger, no matter where they are.

A virtual food drive is a great way to maximize your impact. With just a few clicks, you can make a difference in the lives of your neighbors without ever leaving your desk.

How A Virtual Food Drive Maximizes Donations

Thanks to our relationships with the food industry, we can acquire more food per dollar than the average person could get at the supermarket. With every $1 donation, you help us provide 4 meals to families struggling to access nutritious food.

That is how virtual food drives help your donation go further and feed more people.

If you have any questions, please contact Mike Zolezzi at 314.227.3733 or
