Food drives of all sizes make a difference. Every item of food that we distribute goes to Iowa children, families and seniors struggling with hunger.

Planning Your Food Drive

  • Set a specific time span, ranging from one week to one month long, for your food drive.
  • Allocate space for boxes or bins of food to be collected.
  • Set a goal that you think you can reach. It’s fun to accomplish a goal and celebrate!
  • Make sure you communicate and promote your food drive among your team.
  • Download our Food Drive Tool Kit for tips.
  • Consider hosting a virtual food drive! Click here to create a team on our 2021 Virtual Food Drive page.
