Start A Food Drive

Thanks for your interest in supporting our work.

We encourage donors to host a virtual food drive where you can skip the store and donate online where $1 = 3 meals AND all proceeds are used to purchase food.

Once you've registered your food drive, you'll receive a customizable webpage that can be used to promote and share with friends, family and coworkers.

If you plan to host a traditional food drive please plan to drop off your food donations (and have your food weighed and take a photo in front of our backdrop!) Unfortunately, as a non-profit, we do not have the ability to pick up food donations – you are welcome to deliver your donations to our facility Monday – Friday 7 am – 5 pm (and 9 am - 12 pm on Saturday in November and December) or to one of the 700 partner agencies we work with across Cook County. To find a location type in your zip code and you should be able to find a location close to you. Please call before you deliver the food.
Food Drive Coordinator Info

Thank you for hosting a food drive. As the coordinator you'll be our main contact. We hope you'll stay in touch and let us know how we can help you make the most of your food drive.
