Host a food and fund drive this winter

Host a food and fund drive this winter

January 21, 2019 in Food drive

Your business, organization or church can help fight hunger by hosting a drive to collect food and funds.

Winter is an extremely difficult season for families facing hunger. With an increase in utility costs to keep the house warm, many families are forced to make the tough choice between paying the bills and buying groceries.

Hosting a food and fund drive this winter will help provide for these families. It’s a fun and simple way to encourage teamwork while raising awareness around the issue of hunger in the Ozarks. Get creative by offering participants incentives for donations, or make it a competition among departments.

Every dollar raised will help provide four meals. Collect funds or let us create an online food and fund drive for your business. You can share the link to invite employees, vendors and friends to participate.

We make it easy. The Food Bank will provide drive supplies and pickup of donations for larger drives. Visit to view food drive supplies and register to host a drive. Questions about the process? Contact Thomas Cunningham for help planning your drive.
