Host a Food Drive

Hosting a food drive benefiting United Food Bank is a wonderful way to engage your employees, clients, customers, clubs, church or other organization members.

We make it easy for you to host a food drive by providing donation boxes and posters to make your food and funds drive rewarding.

To schedule a food drive, please fill out and submit the Application to Partner with United Food Bank.
