Where to Drop Off Food Donations

Unopened non-perishable food items can be dropped off at our Volunteer Center anytime! Please visit during regular business hours if assistance is needed. Food donations may also be placed outside in our food donation boxes.

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.

If you have any questions, please contact our Community Engagement Manager, Melissa Forrester at [email protected] or (480) 306-9509.
