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 of Contra Costa and Solano relies on the generous support of manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers and growers within the food industry to supplement programing that reaches hungry community members.

Working with your local food bank can benefit your business by:

  • Reducing storage, waste and disposal expenses
  • Providing protection from liability associated with food donated in good faith
  • Potentially creating new tax credits and deductions
  • Increasing your company’s brand awareness
  • Assuring your donations are being processed using national food safety standards

We welcome surplus and cosmetically-challenged food that is still perfectly edible and safe to consumer, whether it’s a few boxes or multiple truckloads. We are capable of accepting bulk quantities of dry shelf-stable food as well as refrigerated, frozen, and perishable food. In many instances, we can pick up the donated items.

If you’re interested in making a donation, please contact Karen Collins, Food Resource Developer, at 925-408-4459 or
