Food Drive Stories

Every food drive is unique. We encourage you to share your story and photos of your food drive as inspiration for others.


We heard great feedback this year from partners who made the switch from traditional to virtual food drives - where every $1 = 3 meals!

"The virtual drive was awesome. It was easy to set up and manage but the best part was the ability to monitor the progress to keep everyone motivated!"

"This is a great way to coordinate a fresh food drive!"

"This year has been a much more successful drive via the link to our web page. The page is super easy to use and I have heard only positive feedback about it.”

"We made a point to better advertise the ability for online donations this year, and it was a success!"

"You make it very easy and I’m happy to do my little part to support such a great cause. I’m glad we were able to surpass our goal. Thank you for all of your support."

"I am really, really, really overjoyed about our web page."

"I can't thank you enough for helping us get our own web page for the food drive. Streamlining the process for people to donate online made all of the difference. I am really proud of our office, and it is our pleasure to help GCFD.”
