Donate Food

Host a Food Drive

We make it easy for you to collect food for your neighbors in need! We can provide you with our famous food drive barrels, or smaller-sized boxes, and we will even supply you with flyers to distribute. All you need to do is spread the word and encourage others to donate. When the drive is over, give us a call and we will pick up the donated food.

Gifts from the Garden

Whether you bought too many veggies at the store or had a large crop in your garden, extra produce can make a difference to your neighbors in need. Produce can be dropped off at either of the Food Bank warehouses or call us for a local partner agency near you. Please only donate fresh produce without decay.

Food Industry Donors

The Food Bank relies on the generous support of the food industry including food manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, supermarkets and growers. We welcome surplus and cosmetically challenged food that is still perfectly edible and safe to consume.

We are capable of accepting bulk quantities of dry, shelf-stable and refrigerated and frozen food items.

Our food acquisition professionals are experts in the food distribution industry and will ensure your donation is handled smoothly and efficiently. Whether you are donating produce, perishables or frozen food, from a few boxes to multiple truckloads, we will be happy to accept the food on behalf of our hungry community members.

If you’re interested in making a donation and would like to meet with someone from the Food Bank, contact Veronica Wimer 925-676-7543 ext 242 or Galen Stockdale 925-676-7543 ext 222.
