Start My Food Drive Now

We encourage everyday donors and corporations to host a virtual food drive where you skip the store and donate online.

$1 can help buy the equivalent of 3 meals AND all proceeds are used to purchase food!

Once registered you'll receive a customizable webpage to promote your food drive. You can add your logo or a photo, create teams for friendly competition, accept financial donations and share your food drive's progress 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 drive donations. You are welcome to deliver your donations to our facility Monday – Friday 8 am – 3 pm 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 your food drive donations.
