Host a Food Drive

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