Food drives are a great way to get teams and communities together whilst helping us get more food, grocery and personal items to the people who need them.

If you are planning a food drive across multiple states please register with each state.

Host a food drive

You can help provide meals for people in crisis when you hold a food drive. From canned meals and vegetables to bags of rice and pasta, your generous donations will help many families who would otherwise go without.

We welcome all non-perishable pantry items that are in-date and personal hygiene and household items. A few key items include;

  • Bottled water
  • Good quality tinned food and meals (with ring pulls)
  • Noodles, pasta, and rice
  • Long life milk
  • Museli bars and snacks
  • Deodorant, soap and body wash
  • Shampoo, conditioner and sanitary items
  • Baby food and formula
  • Pet food
