Wh Food Drive1

Coordinating a traditional, fund or online food drive is an easy and great opportunity for your business, school, or program to help your local community.
Due to COVID-19, you must pick up boxes/barrels from the food bank. Once your drive is over, you must return any borrowed barrels and food donations collected to the food bank.

Traditional Food Drive

Food Drives allow members of a group to collect non-perishable food items to donate. It can be a one-day event or take place for a predetermined amount of time, typically a week or month.

Holding a food drive in conjunction with an incentive is a great way to get others to participate. So get creative and have a contest or offer a discount at your store in exchange for food donations.

Most Needed Items

  • Canned Meats (i.e., tuna, chicken, etc.)
  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Vegetables & Fruit
  • Fruit Juice
  • Boxed or Canned Meals (i.e., soup, macaroni & cheese, etc.)
  • Dried or Canned Beans, Pasta, Rice, & Cereal

Fund or Online Food Drive

Fund Drives help raise money for Feeding the Gulf Coast to put towards one of our nutrition programs or general food distribution operations. They can be held alone or in conjunction with a traditional food drive.

Because the food bank has bulk purchasing power, with monetary donations, we can process your donation into more meals. For every $10, Feeding the Gulf Coast can provide 50 meals to those in need.
