Host a Food/Fund Drive

Host a Food and Fund Drive

Food and Fund Drives are a great way to increase the supply of food and resources to neighbors in need. Engage your community, neighbors, school group, place of worship or company to raise awareness and provide resources for the one in seven of our neighbors experiencing food insecurity. We are so thankful for your support! Please be sure to register your drive below, and we will get in touch with you shortly.

Before you start, please consider the following to make the biggest impact:

Combine your Food Drive with a Fund Drive
Monetary donations allow the Food Bank to purchase food in large quantities directly from manufacturers and quickly re-distribute to those in need. They also allow us to source the specific items we need in order to fill any gaps in our supply, including fresh produce and dairy. Although we still love traditional food drives, they do take a considerable effort to sort, organize and repack, so monetary donations are always appreciated when possible!

Consider hosting a Virtual Food Drive
Peer to Peer fundraising online is powerful. Help get your network involved through a Facebook or GoFundMe Charity Campaign. Virtual Food Drives allow individuals to come together to collect funds online and reach a set goal as a part of their Food Drive. Every $1 raised helps the Food Bank provide up to five nutritious meals for families and individuals in your community!

$10 can purchase roughly four meals at a store. Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank can use that $10 to provide up to 50 nutritious meals, including fresh produce, protein and dairy, for our neighbors facing hunger.
