Ways to Donate Food
Food Drives and Donation
Food Drives are a great way for local schools, businesses and organizations to fight hunger and make a difference throughout the community.
We work with a network of retail stores and other consumer fulfillment operators that stock food, personal care products and household supplies for sale to the general public. These partners are often in a unique position to donate products as they rotate in new inventory onto their shelves or in cases where packaging was slightly damaged on display or during shipping.
Our network of partners in the manufacturing space consists of corporations that produce foods and other goods that are typically distributed to retail establishments. We are fortunate to receive donations of excess supplies due to label changes, slight damage, and other instances that make the product not fit for retail sale.
Farming Partners include larger regional farming operations as well as local, often small or family-owned farms. Their donations of local, quality, and diverse goods are critical in ensuring our neighbors have the nutritious foods they deserve.
