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. If 20 people give just $25, that's $500, which will feed a family of 4 for 3 months!
Local hunger is solvable. You are the solution. Become one of the thousands of people who raise funds and collect food on behalf of Second Harvest Food Bank. If you're determined to connect our hungry neighbors with the food they need to thrive, host a drive with your company, school, congregation, or family and friends.
Here's how it works:
1) Register online to set your commitment level and begin your drive.
2) Make a plan to promote your drive. It's simple — use our email templates or create your own.
3) Mobilize your social networks to reach your goals. Share your Online Food Drive link and make it easy to participate.
4) Celebrate your progress and thank your supporters. Every $1 brings you closer to your goal!
