Host a Food or Fund Drive

Gleaners’ Food & Fund Drives offer engaging and community-centric opportunities for individuals, businesses, and organizations to raise support for our hungry neighbors. Food drives provide a variety of greatly needed food items that go directly to our hungry neighbors. 

Every 4 pounds of donated food = 3 meals

Every $1 donated = 3 meals

Three Ways to Gather Support

Virtual Food Drive
Take your drive online! Invite your audience to donate food through a secure online shopping experience.

Food Drive
Donate nonperishable food items and provide Gleaners’ partner agencies with a variety of greatly needed items.

Fund Drive
Help raise monetary donations that allow Gleaners to leverage industry relationships to buy more food per dollar for our partner agencies.

With 92 cents of every dollar going to work for our programs and services, every gift provides direct relief to children, families, and seniors.

  • A food drive coordinator to help you every step of the way.
