Holiday Food & Fund Drive

Mother and Daughter shopping for foodHelp feed hungry families this holiday season by hosting a Food & Fund Drive

Businesses, faith communities, schools, service organizations and individuals are encouraged to host food and fund drives. Your support is critical in ensuring we have the necessary food during the cold winter months.

You can use your own boxes or borrow Roadrunner Food Bank collection barrels. If you plan to collect 250 pounds or more of food than we can drop barrels at your location before the start of your food drive and pick them up once the barrels are full. However, if you think you’ll collect fewer than 250 pounds we ask that you use your own boxes and bring your donations directly to the Food Bank (M-F 8am to 4pm).

ONLINE FOOD & FUND DRIVE
The Online Food & Fund Drive alleviates the need for scheduling barrels and dealing with heavy food. Participating is simple and fun – just register online or start a new team, set a fundraising goal, create a web page and ask others to support your efforts to help feed hungry people. You can send emails to friends and colleagues and track your online gifts from your computer.  Take a look at how easy it is by visiting the Online Food & Fund Drive website.

APPRECIATION AND AWARDS
During the Holiday Food & Fund Drive we are busy tracking and calculating every pound of food and gift received. As part of our thanks to you, the Food Bank will recognize top participants in several categories.

FOOD DRIVES COST MONEY
The Food Bank pays for the fuel in our trucks and the time a driver spends delivering and picking up every food donation. Please help us be more cost efficient by hosting an Online Food Drive. Also, consider using your own boxes to collect food and bring your donation of food to the Food Bank (M-F 8am to 4pm).
