Food Drives

Food collected from a Food DriveWe may not see the effects of a hungry person first-hand, but the silent struggles they encounter are all around us. Your contribution to Roadrunner Food Bank helps to alleviate some of the stresses hungry people face.

Organizing a Food & Fund Drive

Get together with people from your business, faith community, school, group or civic organization to coordinate a food drive. At Roadrunner Food Bank, we encourage you to collect both food items and funds.  Be sure to set a date to start collecting food items.  Invite and remind your group where and how to donate food.  Also, collect funds through our Online Food Drive webpage. By setting up your very own webpage, your efforts really help leverage the amount of food we can provide.  All funds raised through your online efforts will help us acquire and then distribute even more food.  For every $1 you help us raise, we are able to distribute FIVE meals to help feed our hungry neighbors.

Host a food and fund drive in a few easy steps.

  1. Create your very own Online Food Drive team.  Your team’s custom webpage allows you track your team’s progress.
  2. Pick a start day and end day to collect food with your group. Remind people where and how to donate the food through fliers, email messages and team meetings.
  3. At the completion of your food drive, plan a date to deliver the food you collected back to the Food Bank.

Collecting Food During Your Food Drive

We encourage you to use sturdy boxes or borrow Roadrunner Food Bank’s collection barrels. If you plan to use our food barrels, please coordinate a pick up day and time with us well in advance.  Once your food drive is complete, please return the food you collected as well as our food barrels during business hours – Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4pm.
