Does hosting a food and fund drive really make a difference? Yes! Every $1 you raise provides 2 local meals. Let's say you send out a couple of emails, post your drive on Facebook, and tweet a few facts stats on local hunger. By asking just 25 of your friends for $30, you'll provide 1,500 meals to local families!

Local hunger is solvable, but we need your help. Volunteer to raise funds and collect food on behalf of Second Harvest Food Bank today to provide food for hungry neighbors tomorrow.

Here's how it works:

Register to set your commitment level and begin your drive with your company, school, congregation, or family and friends.
